    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Hi, I wouldn't say im new to ASL but taking it more seriously now since I have time due to COVID. I learned ASL a little over 13 years ago but I haven't used it and since I am now older I have the patience to learn more and appreciate everything being taught. Im a terrible finger speller and its hard for me to read them when signed. I want to get more practice if anyone wants to video chat sometime.

    Hey There! I'm Nick, I'm 24 and live in Washington D.C. I haven't had much practice with sign language but I've enjoyed learning about it and learning new signs for a long time. I'd like to get more involved with it but I don't know anyone else who knows sign language or is interested in learning (so sad). If you want to sign, I'll try to login regularly and we can chat and help each other learn!

    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? 😂

    Greetings! I've completed ASL 1 and 2 classes at our local university and want to practice ASL online. Looking forward to connecting with others who have the same interest. Kathy

    Great practice. We can all help. First little bit of advice. The sign for MAKE in ASL does not work the way it does in English. MAKE in ASL is literally to create something. So for making friends you would want to sign something like FRIENDS ME WANT NEW. You can use MEET, FIND, ACQUIRE. Just not MAKE. Make is an English word that has about 10 different uses in English. In sign, the sign for make is literally to create something.

    I have always wanted to learn ASL. I feel like I am missing the opportunity to connect with amazing people by not knowing how to sign. I don't want to miss out on a friend just because we cannot communicate. The world is more fun when you can meet new people

    Hi Lysandor ! You are right, I am actually studying English and ASL in order to move to US or Canada, both seems awesome to me. I learned LSF during a job experience once for a client. I wanted to learn more but everything courses was out of price for a 14 years old's wallet. I grew up and discover that sign language was not only "French oriented", that every country had its own signs. Learning ASL is both fun and interesting. I'd love to go to ASL event once I go there.

    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.

    It's something like "what to do" or "what is she doing" or "what's going on" but does not mean, "what's happening?" I can't see the gentleman's face but if he is squinting his eyes then it's like a wh kind of question. The motion you are referring to is uniquely ASL and not an exact translation of English words. That's my two cents on the question.
