    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!

    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.

    Hi, Jason! My name is Joy and I would love a pal to practice with! I live in the great city of Austin, Texas and work as a teacher. I need to seriously improve my signing for my work. Although ideally, we would also have someone from the Deaf community with us, I am certain that there would be great value in the 2 of us signing together, novices we may be. Now I am going to attempt to record something like this in a video for you. Hope to hear from you soon... Joy Ok, guess who! So i went to record this (and I recorded a video the other day on this computer, so I know it works), and it told me that my camera and microphone were blocked and that I need to unblock them. But i cannot figure out how! Can you help?

    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!

    Hi, I just started ASL 1, I would love to participate in a ASL video chat room until I feel comfortable with joining a formal group. I have always been fascinated with ASL but never had the opportunity to learn the language. I recently re-entered the workforce on a part-time bases working with stroke victims as a Developmental Specialist with a local heath care agency who in turn suggested that I enroll in the ASL program at our local county community college. I'm having a great time and I feel that this would be a giant step toward acclimating myself with the Deaf community. Looking forward to simply saying "hello"😊

    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 only recently began learning ASL, since April, 2018. I have found the lessons with Meredith very helpful. She also gives a side view, which helps to see the signs from a different angle. >>> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsuBAbMlPGJ95w3mwhz-30g

    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.
