    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.

    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.

    Hi. My name is Ali. I’m looking for a video chat friend. I’m learning sign language and I learned the alphabet in second grade. I know how to sign sentences a little but I’d like to learn more and I also want to make friends. If someone could contact me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

    Hello! I am HOH and live a deaf life except for school, I don't really want hearing aids and I am an intermediate signer who is willing to take on some beginners and work with them!!

    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

    Like the title says my name is Alan, signed up for this site because I have recently found a passion for languages. I took some Spanish in middle school and I always dreaded it. Since then I have fumbled my way around trying to teach myself several languages including Swedish, French, Nepali, Japanese (not sure if I'll keep up with this one), abit of Sign Language and Braille. I am by no means fluent any of them but would love to push myself to learn even more. I would say I am very much a beginner with signing. I know the alphabet and numbers to 100 but am pretty slow. I know a handful of colors and other random words. If you would like to learn with me that would be awesome.

    Hello. I'm Raven I've been teaching myself ASL like my whole life as well. My goal (as everyone else's) is to be fluent in ASL. So I can become a medical interpreter one day. I desperately need practice partners and someone to help me with sentence structures and grammar.

    After speaking with deaf ppl on Facebook, decided itd be a bad idea to have a deaf character without spending a lot of time talking to deaf ppl first. Idk how to delete threads, but yeah, ignore this!

    Hey Gabby! I'm open to just sign for a bit and see how that goes if you're up for it? We can meet in one of the chatrooms if you want?

    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.

    Hello my name is Mina and I am currently taking ASL 2. I joined this site because I don't know any deaf people to sign with or anyone in general who I can sign with outside of my classroom. I would really like to improve in My Signing skills and also be able to retain the information that is being taught in the classroom and so on. I feel that in order to improve in my retention and signing abilities is to put them to practice which I do at home to myself but I know that I need to be able to practice it with another person or a group of people. I hope that I can find some people can practice with me and vice versa.

    I'm also in ASL 2 and would love to practice. I feel like receptive skills need work and that seems like the easiest way. Let me know if you'd like to practice sometime.

    Greeting to you all. I am a hearing person that is looking for a little more help in learning ASL. I have a son who is hearing impaired and he's learning quickly and I am tr ing to stay abreast of the items I learned thus far. So, if there are any hearing impaired person that read this, send me a reply. Thank you in advance.

    Rolando is right that the eyebrows make it a question. However, the question "Did he do basic level ASL last year?" is a yes or no question, meaning that you must raise your eyebrows for it. You lower your eyebrows for "Wh-" questions (Who, what, when, where, why), such as "Who is your doctor?"

    I was looking for a site that had live video chatting so I could practice my ASL while meeting some new people online. This is a great site, wish it was busier. If anyone wants to jump into one of the chat rooms, hmu, I'm willing to give it a shot.

    *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!)

    I laughed out loud and understood the story perfectly! Thanks for signing so clearly! A new spin on "if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one to hear it, does it make a sound?" If a tree is dead and can't hear itself, does it really fall? 😂
