    Chat Room Activity

    I've noticed there's an increasing amount of people attempting to use the chat rooms on the website to practice. I'm here to possibly discuss a solution. If people read this, we could arrange to have people congregate to the chatroom at around 9 pm EST two days a week. At this time most people would be off work and have a little bit of free time. My suggestion is everyone tries to hop on around 9 pm EST either every Friday (as per the calendar) or every Wednesday and Saturday, where people get two opportunities per week to meet others. What do you guys think? I try to check the chat every other day at around 8 pm EST. My ultimate suggestion is 9 pm EST on Friday. What do you guys think?

    I don't want to lose my skills!

    I recently retired from teaching braille. Am taking an ASL class and enjoying it. Just need more opportunities to practice. Looking forward to checking out this site and finding ways to practice. So far enjoying the fingerspelling game. I am amazed that it is possible to read 30 words or more in such a short period of time from seeing all the names on the leaderboard! I am at 16! I have a long way to go! Unlike braille, where reading braille is far easier than writing braille, it seems with ASL it is easier to sign or finger spell to someone than it is to interpret what they are signing or fingerspelling to you. It will be refreshing to be on the other side of the teaching/learning relationship!

    My reasons to speak with my hands

    Recently retired from the field of Education for Blind and Visually Impaired. Want to learn something new for a potential opportunity to volunteer or take a part-time position in a new area of education or rehabilitation. Looking for a place to practice ASL. Started my first class on July 9.

  10. Hi everyone! I'm a former Teacher of the Deaf from SC. I moved to NC in January and took a new job as a special education teacher. I only had one student I could sign with this past year, and I really don't want to lose all the skills I had from before. I would be willing to chat with anyone. I'm no expert, but any practice is good practice! 😁

    Hello :)

    HI! My name is Erin and i've been doing sign language since my freshman year of High School and want to be an interpreter. I'm doing college over the summer for it to keep up on my skills but I wanna build up in fluidity. I've been hard of hearing (that we found out) since 5th grade and have been wearing hearing aids since I know a good chuck of vocabulary in ASL and the deaf culture history I just wanna practice to keep up and build on my skills. If anyone wants to practice then let me know please

    Hello!

    My name is Frank, I'm 20 years old, and I'm an interpreting student at RIT/NTID. I'm looking for more people to sign with, Deaf, HoH, or hearing, as I'm moving to Rochester from an area with VERY few people who can sign and I'm wanting to get in contact with more signing individuals. I'd love to set up video calls at some point and get to know people!

    Introduction

    Hi Patty! Looking forward to learning with you!

    Hello!

    Hi everyone! My name is Tina and I currently live in WA state. I started learning ASL for my work with non-verbal elementary school students. New to this type of work, I was in a class and a little girl was signing "toilet" for 5 mins before I asked someone what it meant. Horrified, I immediately signed up for ASL at my local community college. I fell in love day 1 and completed ASL 2 and 3. As there isn't a Deaf community nearby and I've exhausted the local college, I was looking for a place that offered the opportunity for practice and additional learning. Looking forward to meeting everyone. T

    Hi I'm Breanna

    Hello everyone, My name's Breanna and I live in Michigan. I just finished up my ASL 1 class at community college so I'm still pretty new to the language and culture. I'll be honest, I took the class at first because I needed the credits, but I found that I really enjoyed the class and will probably continue in it. College keeps me busy but I hope to be able to hop on here and practice every now and then, as well as meet some new people. I look forward to chatting with everyone and learning more about ASL and deaf culture.

    Asking Someone on a Date

    Sorry for all the posts. I did some brief reading on sentence structure, I am reminded of my Russian studies where sentences can be very simple and order can determine emphasis. Obviously I will take anyone’s advice, but something like: - Here too many people - future you me dinner? - tomorrow i call, okay?

    Asking Someone on a Date

    Okay, one more sentence while I'm asking "I was thinking the two of us could have dinner sometime - you know - without all these other people."
  25. There’s someone in my social circle that I would like to get to know better. Whenever I see her, we are always with a crowd of people, so I was racking my brain to come up with how to ask and get her attention. Among other things she is an ASL teacher... if I started signing to her I think she would be absolutely floored (and hopefully say yes!) I would like to sign to her: ”I would like to call you tomorrow, if that is okay.” I’ll cover some more general words between now and then, but that’s how I’d like to ‘surprise’ her as it were. Thanks in advance!

    Creating numbers

    Hello Karen, Thanks for the suggestion, we'll take a look at adding numbers in a future update. Are you referring to the animation resource: https://www.signlanguageforum.com/asl/fingerspelling/message/ ?
