    This is an attempt to get more people online at the same time to hang out and practice ASL! The idea is to organize enough that anytime after 5:00 PM Eastern Time, there will be plenty of signers of varying skill levels online and everyone can get practice in, or just hang out and make friends!

    Hey all, I'm Brie, 32f, from right outside Nashville, TN. I am teaching myself ASL via online classes, books and youtube channels because I have a degenerative hearing loss disorder and I want to have resources for once I can't hear anymore. I don't know any deaf or HoH folks so I'd love to have a practice partner. Thanks y'all!

    So, I'm gonna be a little bit of a di*k. This is kind of offensive. And you'll end up pissing off Deaf people doing this. This is at it's best cultural appropriation and at worst it's audism. This is taking a culture that you apparently know nothing about. A language that you obviously know nothing about. And then using those things for your own personal gain. If you want your graphic novel about deaf people. Why they need to be deaf, I don't know. Unless you're just using it because you feel your characters need to have a disability, and deaf was the winner of the day. But how are you going to give your book an "authentic feel" if you can't bother to take the time to learn enough about a culture to say a basic sentence? Do your own work. Learn it, like everyone else has had to. Spend some time with a deaf person. Learn who they are as people and then you can speak, as an outsider, to their culture. But to just ask someone to do work for you so you can gain from another culture is a little offensive.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think that might be the sign for PHARMACY. You signed MEDICINE + STORE. So I'm guessing that means PHARMACY. I don't know the context of the conversation. But that would be my guess.

    There's a variation on this that you will see sometimes as well where just the thumbs rotate.

    I think it would be a really great feature to have some type of notification be able to go out to those who request it that notifies them when someone has created/joined a room and are looking for others to sign with. The video chat feature is really great if you know that others are on. The problem with the iteration that it is now is that people need to know that there are people available to sign with and the current system requires a bit of fate or planning to ensure that you are in the lobby at the same time. Could you look into creating a system whereby a text or email notification is sent out to those that subscribe so that they will be notified when someone is looking for others to sign with.

    Well, when i was younger I found out that I am hard of hearing In my left ear since my brother decided to jam my ear with a quetip. And I started watching this amazing new show called switched at birth. And I have always wanted to learn sign language, since I'm hard of hearing as is, I use alot of body language already. So my daughter and I have actually started picking up on it very well and I'm def interested in learning more.

    Technically you can sign either. The more ASL version would be YOUR DOCTOR WHO with eyebrows lowered for the WHO. But you could technically ask WHO YOUR DOCTOR with eyebrows lowered the entire time. But this is usually considered more English. But you will still find Deaf people that do it. It's just not as ASL as the first example.

    I use the first version. The second version looks like it might actually come from hearing people. It's a thing we do when we're hoping for something. Usually accompanied with someone saying something like, "Fingers crossed, I hope I get that job."

    I'm not sure if this is correct, but I use the first version for the noun (ex. there's hope for the future) and the second version for the verb (ex. I hope you have a good day).

    Hello, my name is Reggie, and I've recently decided to learn sign language. After some unfortunate events in recent years, talking has become quite the burden on my psyche, and I do almost anything I can to avoid it. My therapist suggests that I have simply become selectively mute, which, when taken into consideration of everything that has happened and my past mental history, it rather makes sense. So, here I am, ready to learn a whole new way of speaking. If anyone has any tips or would like to help me, that would be greatly appreciated. I am, in fact, particularly interested in video chatting and any form of conversing through sign language, since I live in a very isolated rural area and there is no one here for me to practice ASL with. Once again, if anyone would like to or possibly could help me, that would be wonderful and I thank you.

    I'm learning ASL because I feel that the language is so underrated. I like being able to communicate in a different way without using the voice but the art of sign. I am only a beginner and hope to one day increase my skills in time. Nice to meet you all

    I am learning sign language because I wish to connect with the Deaf community and I am majoring in ASL interpreting and I want to become a good interpreter that respects cultural nuance. I'm just starting out, I just finished ASL 1 and I am in search of deaf friends that would be willing to practice with me.

    I'm learning because it is something to me i feel i should learn. There are so many wonderful people out there who live in a whole different kind of world that is still the same world as those like me who can speak. I honestly want to learn from their point of view. Learning a language like Spanish or French is just not something that is pulling for me to learn. ASL is just one that is

    In all honesty, sign language has been a passion of mine since i can remember, maybe around the age of 10, my grandmother was deaf, and my mother is deaf in one ear, and then down to me, i cant tell if its hereditary in my family or not lol, but i started learning from my grandmother before she died. Whenever i would see her use sign language to someone it just seemed so personal, and unique to her. i could see all her emotions as she felt them when she signed. you could see happiness when she was happy and fury when she was angry, it seems way more expressive and you can see how someone is feeling to the tee. its just beautiful, it just made me want to learn it more. as i got older i never seen anyone ever use sign language and it became hard for me to communicate with other people and them me because no one knew the language and didnt bother to try to learn it to talk to me. i had a hard time getting by in school and even as i came into my adult years, the fact that there is no one around that knows it makes me what to learn it more because its different and its a silent and graceful language just as i am, so not only am i learning for communication purposes but also because i want people to see the beauty in it and how more expressive we can be with this language.

    Hello! My name is Sierra and I am currently a student at Arizona State University. I am studying Psychology! For my required language, I decided to take ASL and I am really glad I chose to! I joined this community because I am a beginner in ASL, I wish to get better, and I'm struggling to find a good resource that will help me with my homework (hopefully I've found one)!

    *Also, I could of used the same facial expression for both signs. Again, it's just my opinion, so I put more emphasis on the second version because I think it has more meaning to it. (Facial expressions are important!)

    "Hello, my name is Libby. I am deaf, I sign slow, I am also new to sign language and I like talking to other deaf people like me, Bye!" So as you can see in this video I am super new to learning sign language, please only helpful comments and no hurtful comments. I was diagnosed completely deaf in one ear and 87% in the other when I was 1 and a half, Now I am completely deaf in both ears. I don't talk very well and I need someone to video chat with that could help me because I don't know anyone who knows sign language. I am 15 and really need to become more independent.
