    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!

    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.

    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

    I came to this website hoping I could find someone I can be an apprentice to. Someone who is like a mentor and whom I can connect with, someone dedicated just as myself. Preferably a female, my schedule is quite open. So I am going to talk a little bit about myself and if you feel as though we could be mutual acquaintance or friends send me a message telling me a little about yourself. My name is Scarlet Rose, I am a 20 year old female. I am interested in learning many things ranging from anatomy, numerology, mythology, different languages and different places. I'd like to learn lock picking and it would also be nice to learn automotive. I am interested in learning ASL because it truly is a unique language, especially considering when we speak most of what we say and what we give off to another is read in our body language. ASL is a language that I feel would broaden my sense of experience in life, especially with those around me. I am a night owl, I enjoy varieties of music but don't have a favorite kind. I don't have a favorite color either. Hmm... What else? Well, I'm a Libra. The only inanimate object of the zodiac signs. I enjoy traveling even though I don't do much of it. But car rides and going to new places around me suffice. Thanks for taking your time to read about me. Sincerely, Scarlet Rose.

    Hi, Fog here! I am a former ASL student who wants to get better. I am hard of hearing. I wear a Cochlear Implant on my left ear and a hearing aid on the right. I am looking forward to signing with y'all. I live in the hearing world so I rarely meet people who sign.
