    • Welcome. Nice to see you here.
    • Hello my name is Biscelia I am learning sign and would love to meet new friends to practice with. I am not deaf but I love the deaf community and I have a deaf sister but she lives in Georgia.  I have taken a asl class here and plan on going back in july. 😊
    • Great practice.  We can all help.  First little bit of advice.  The sign for MAKE in ASL does not work the way it does in English.  MAKE in ASL is literally to create something. So for making friends you would want to sign something like FRIENDS ME WANT NEW. You can use MEET, FIND, ACQUIRE.  Just not MAKE.  Make is an English word that has about 10 different uses in English.  In sign, the sign for make is literally to create something.
