    Hi, I'm Alix

    Hi. I'm a beginner to ASL and I'm looking for people to sign with. I am 11 years old and I started learning ASL by watching Switched at Birth which has deaf characters in it. I am currently home-schooled and I live in Vermont. Please reply if you would like to sign with me and we can find a time to sign together in a video chat room.

    Greetings from Chicago

    Hi, Jason! My name is Joy and I would love a pal to practice with! I live in the great city of Austin, Texas and work as a teacher. I need to seriously improve my signing for my work. Although ideally, we would also have someone from the Deaf community with us, I am certain that there would be great value in the 2 of us signing together, novices we may be. Now I am going to attempt to record something like this in a video for you. Hope to hear from you soon... Joy Ok, guess who! So i went to record this (and I recorded a video the other day on this computer, so I know it works), and it told me that my camera and microphone were blocked and that I need to unblock them. But i cannot figure out how! Can you help?
  6. Back in the 1990s I was a slam poet, and I've been told that my signing is particularly theatrical as a result. I know that the sign for THEATER is backwards pinwheeling of thumbs-up "A" hands in front of your chest; but is there a separate sign for THEATRICAL, or do I simply sign THEATER in an exaggerated way?

    A little about me

    I just learned about Switched at Birth, and began watching it on Netflix this week. Have you seen that video of Sean Berdy signing the entire alphabet in four seconds? Pretty amazing.

    Greetings from Chicago

    Hi! My name is Jason. I live in Chicago (spelling/city-sign). I'm hard of hearing, and I wear a hearing aid. My hearing is getting worse and worse, year after year. I can see the writing on the wall, so I thought now would be a good time to learn ASL. For two weeks I've been self-studying online, at Lifeprint.com, but next month I begin a class at Columbia College, here in the city. Right now I'm practicing at home all by myself -- so sad! -- so thank you, THANK you, for your help and friendship.
  9. Earlier
  10. I have been told by local interpreters and Deaf that to sign the ILY single hand shape is very casual. Used more with friends and people that you love, but it is not really used for romantic love unless it's something like a casual goodbye to a partner. I LOVE YOU signed individually is used for romantic love. Something you would say for emphasis with a partner. Also, many younger Deaf will not sign LOVE in regards to objects. Older Deaf will still use this version, but younger tend to go with KISSFIST when referring to things/objects/activities that they Love.

    Intro

    HI, I am Mike. Many years ago while in college, I lived in a residential school for the deaf and was employed as a dorm supervisor of middle school-aged boys (for room and board). I became fairly conversant in ASL through immersion. Unfortunately, after leaving college, the opportunities to sign became fewer and my skills diminished, considerably. Now trying to regain old skills and improve on those. I have a name sign assigned by boys in my charge. MD at right side of head near temple, palm facing head. Looking forward to using tools here and help from members.

    Can hard of hearing people give out name signs?

    Hi! Sorry this is such a late response. Yes, HoH people can give name signs but only IF they are a member of the Deaf community and fluent in ASL. Those who are not any of the above & not Deaf/HoH should not be giving out name signs.

    Hi~

    Hi, my name is Ana. I have been learning ASL since I was a child due to the fact that I just liked the language but turns out, it would be useful in my future later. I had cancer when I was young and found out recently due to the treatment I took then, I suffered some hearing loss and will need hearing aids. So I plan to work hard and learn ASL as I have been. I am learning many languages. Anyways, I'm pretty boring. Oh um I'm also in a wheelchair. So hey hehe nice to meet you all and I have Glide so feel free to PM me if you'd like to get to know me. 👌🤟👋
