glide ASL practice/conversation buddies?
kait posted a topic in General ChatHi all, I would like to practice asl more, but unfortunately I don’t have any friends that sign or are learning to sign. I know a lot of random vocabulary but I struggle with conversations because anything we did in class was scripted (because that’s helpful for the real world -_-). Overall, I’d say I’m probably intermediate. Anyone is welcome to add me on Glide, my username is itskait
kait posted a topic in Introduce YourselfMy name is Kait and I'm 20 years old. I'm hearing, but I don't remember ever not knowing some random signs (for ex. eat, talk, more, water) and how to fingerspell. My mom (also hearing) used to be fluent in ASL and these "basics" were how we used to communicate when I had gymnastics meets. If the team needed a snack, water, or medicine I could tell her and she would do what she needed to get it for us. Little 8 year old me felt SO cool, hahaha. I took ASL 1 and 2 in high school, where I learned more random signs and grammar. I struggle with real conversations (in class they were all scripted) and am hoping to practice more and become fluent someday. I'm finishing up my last semester of Spanish that's required for my major, so I can focus on ASL now.
