    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.

    I was born deaf. And I have been searching for a website to allow me to make new friends that use ASL or I can teach someone ASL.. I have just found this website so I decided to try it out!

    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

    For video chatting it says you have to use Firefox or chrome web browser for or to work. I would love to chat with anyone on here.

    I've noticed there's an increasing amount of people attempting to use the chat rooms on the website to practice. I'm here to possibly discuss a solution. If people read this, we could arrange to have people congregate to the chatroom at around 9 pm EST two days a week. At this time most people would be off work and have a little bit of free time. My suggestion is everyone tries to hop on around 9 pm EST either every Friday (as per the calendar) or every Wednesday and Saturday, where people get two opportunities per week to meet others. What do you guys think? I try to check the chat every other day at around 8 pm EST. My ultimate suggestion is 9 pm EST on Friday. What do you guys think?

    Hi Claire! Good for you! So so brave and just...really I think that what you are doing is amazing. If you want to practice ASL I would love to do that. I really need the practice. I have not used sign for 15 years and Im just getting back into it and I want to take and then pass (of course!) The interpreter test! Please let me know if you are interested in practicing via video.

    This is the perfect place to post this! In my experience, the ILY handshape version is more friendly and succinct, good for goodbyes to friends or lovers(works for groups too). The I, Love, You version is more emotive, and can be used more emphatically. I would use it for emphasis or if you're trying to make a stronger point(body movement and facial expression are vital). Hope this helps!

    Hey Autumn- I'm also in my 4th semester of ASL (at Colorado State - so jealous you are going to my dream school!) I'd love to chat and discuss this, as I have a few ideas! 😄

    Hello! My name is Emily. I am a sophomore in college. My major is Exploratory Education and my minor is ASL! I love ASL and the history revolving it and the Deaf community! I want to make friends and also practice ASL, there is so much more I have left to learn and I just don't want to stop! If you can't tell by all the exclamation marks, I feel as if I have a very giddy personality. I don't like to be down, or negative. I wouldn't call my self "upbeat" because i like to say around as much as i can and do nothing! :) I love binge watching Netflix (right now I'm deeply into Switched at Birth its crazzzyyyyy) I love to face time. Because I feel when you are texting, you can see the sarcasm in someones face! lol I also love jokes. Puns are my absolute favorite. I hope to meet some people! God Bless! <3

    Hi! My name is Irving and I recently started learning American Sign Language. I'm finishing the beginners course. I'm a hearing person and would love to make friends who can introduce me into the deaf community. My goals in life is to become an interpreter. Currently I'm working as a teacher. I had a student who was deaf. He inspired me to learn, and since I've been taking the classes I'm in love with the language. If anyone wishes to chat, feel free to write to me.

    Probably not. ASL 3 is not offered at the local university. I enjoyed watching your ASL video, Horse WIth No Name. 😊

    "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.
