    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!

    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.

    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.

    *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!)

    Last night I went out dancing with my two friends Fernie(I think I got that right?) and Amanda. We danced at a place called Whiskey Dicks(unfortunate name). We danced all night long, it was fun! They had both Spanish and English music. Whiskey Dicks is a foreign club.

    my translation is similar to Lysandor. However what is the sign with both fingers in the 1 handshape coming toward the camera? I don't recognize that.

    PS. Rolando, I really appreciate these videos. They're short and your signing speed is really helpful. Great work in helping people with their receptive skills.

    "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.

    Hi everyone! I am in ASL level 3, and recently finished teaching a series of ten ASL classes at my local library. I did this in order to make the resources to learn available to my community, since there are so few actual classes that exist. I taught a variety of different signs, from emergency signs, to verbs, to food signs. It was a very rewarding experience, and I highly recommend anyone who is considering entering a career in ASL to try it out. Even just teaching the alphabet and basic conversation signs could make a huge difference. I am posting my powerpoints, and packets (which include pictures of all of the signs, crossword puzzles, and sentence practice for participants to take home) here, in the hopes that someone can use them to continue teaching themselves, or to teach their community some ASL. Enjoy!

    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

    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.
