  5. Sorry, thank you, now I’m Loue, (not sure the last but something revolving around MIND, not sure what the swoop out means).
  6. This forum is amazing by the way, as everyone is extremely helpful. I need help with these two signs. Sign 1 is the flat K hands tapping each other on top. Sign 2 is K hands the are moved in a flat square shape. Thanks so much for looking!

    Hi I'm Caitlyn

    Hi Caitlyn, That's wonderful, thanks for the offer. I'm also in the PST however I wake up earlier than most people. My wife goes to work around 5 am and as a result I normally wake up at that time as she does, around 4 am. I would love to find someone to practice with and learn more. I need practice to help reinforce and remember the signs and gestures associated with ASL. If you can commit to a time let me know and I will meet in the chat room. Thanks, epsilonv
  8. If the hand is by the side if the head, it could be a version of the sign "WHY"
  9. What ASL sign looks like the sign for twenty five toward the forehead?

    Hi I'm Caitlyn

    Hi everyone! My name is Caitlyn and I am an ASL interpreting student. I started learning sign language when I was little and have always been fascinated with it. I was finally able to take ASL 1 at my local college in 2015 and haven't stopped signing since. I'm excited to be here and practice with everyone in the chatrooms! If anyone ever needs someone to practice with I'm on most of the time Mon-Thurs PST just message me.

    Hi, I'm Jill.

    Like the title says, I'm Jill. I'm 17 years old and have been learning American Sign Language on and off since I was 12. I never really got to learn in a class because in my hometown there were no Sign Language classes outside of the community college. Now I'm taking an online class, but I don't get to practice my signs or conversations at much because it's online and I don't have any classmates. If anyone wants to video chat and practice with me, that'd be fun. I especially need help with the grammar part of ASL. Also, I'm on East Coast time and usually am free around 5:00 pm if that's important.

    Hi I'm Kat

    Hi Kat, Sad that has happened to you but you are definitely taking the right steps and being very brave and pro-active about it. I recently started here and have been taking a signing classes once a week since March 7th, 2019. I am really surprise how much I've learnt already. I am not deaf however I do work with people who are and occasionally I have the chance to practice with them, which is a lot of fun. I suspect I will be spending a lot of time in the video chat rooms, perhaps I will see you there some time. Regards, epsilonv
  14. Hello All! Like the title says, I'm Randi. I'm hearing and I'm 24. I have studied ASL on and off since I was eight. The main reason for the 'off' times, was simply frustration. There is really nowhere to practice in my small Georgia town, and my family has no interest whatsoever in learning. After I've studied on my own for a while, I'll hit the proverbial brick wall, struggle for a bit, and then lay it down until I'm ready to work through it. The main reason I'm here is to practice, of course, and to meet people with a similar interest. Interaction with people of all skill-levels in invaluable to me, and I know it'll really open my eyes to how much I've been missing. I'm not going to lie, though. I'm nervous. Shy by nature, putting myself out there with a half developed skill is a little terrifying to me. From the time I was about 10 until I was about 15, everything I learned came from books. Vocabulary, alphabet, numbers and such. The first of those 'brick walls' I hit was that while my books were titled ASL they were in fact PSE/SEE, and I discovered the difference until a few years in. I want to learn true ASL, so slowly but surely, I'm trying to unlearn the English part of it, and sort through to find what I need to keep. It's more challenging than I thought possible. The main resource I use now is Lifeprint.com. Thank you to the wonderful, and fantastic Dr. Bill Vicars who puts so much time into assembling such a comprehensive resource. Another reason I'm looking for more experienced signers to communicate with is simply accountability. Being the only ASL student around, it's easy to slip into incorrect versions, misused words, and worse: gestures. Dun dun dun. Anyway, I'd love the chance to talk to some patient souls. Maybe we can practice some? I'll have a new laptop in about a week, so I'll be able to Skype after that. More about myself: I work 9-5's on weekdays, and I'm starting core classes online beginning in the summer semester. I've got a good start with ASL vocabulary, by my delivery and receptive skills are...un-examined. For those who know ASLU/Lifeprint.com, I've taken lessons 1-10 a few times with no real trouble, if that helps figure out where I'm at. I need to finish it, but every time I quit, I insist on starting over. Well, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I hope I haven't run on too terribly much. Nice to meet you! Randi

    Hi I'm Kat

    Hi Kat it's nice to meet you. I am slower paced in my learning and nearly at the finish of my ASL 101 class so I know some basics such as numbers and the alphabet and a lot of basic vocabulary. I am not fluent or professional by any means and I would love to have somebody to practice with and to chat when we have the time. Feel free to send me a message sometime.

    Hello I'm Danielle!

    @Nana Dee I see, well I very much appreciate you offering your services! However I am more in search of people I may practice with, and not looking for a tutor at this time as it is outside of my financial capability. Thank you again and best of luck on here!

    Hi I'm Kat

    Hi! My name is kat, short for Kathleen. I am learning ASL slowly on my own because I have been diagnosed with a degenerative condition causing me to slowly go deaf in both ears. I'd love to make some friends or find people to practice with!

    Hello I'm Danielle!

    Hi Danielle, I don't tutor AT PPCC, but tutor lots of students From PPCC that are having problems. The rest of my time I spend at Penrose Hosp. helping Dr.'s and nurses communicate with the deaf. I'm available Mon - Thur, but we need to coordinate our times and meeting place. I charge $40/hour. Some of that time can be via Skype or other, but the most effective learning is done in person. If that's acceptable to you, or if you have more questions, you can contact me at [email protected], or [email protected], or via the Sign Language Forum. Nana Dee

    Hello I'm Danielle!

    Hiya! Megan here

I'm hearing, but translate for deaf patients at my local hospitals, quite regularly, and tutor PPCC (local Jr. College) students who are struggling. You can contact me @ [email protected], or call me @ (757) 375-3923 and leave a message. I also have several ads on Craigslist.org. Let's talk. Nana Dee.

    Looking for ways to learn

    Hi Max, I'd love to help. It's good that you're on the East coast, because the "Gallaudet" standard has been compromised by "Mexican/Spanish" on the West coast. I'm hearing, but translate for deaf patients at my local hospitals, quite regularly, and tutor PPCC (local Jr. College) students who are struggling. You can contact me @ [email protected], or call me @ (757) 375-3923 and leave a message. I also have several ads on Craigslist.org. Let's talk. Nana Dee.
