Would you be interested in trying a live conversation on Skype or Hangouts? The thing with video is that I can practice beforehand and also take my time understanding it. I know that's useful, but I can do that with YouTube videos (in fact, that's what I do). But what if you're actually dependent on ASL for communication? I want to throw myself off the deep end and see how far I get. Preferably with another learner so that we won't be embarrassed asking for repetition several times. What do you think?
Hi Nana, I just registered with this site and noticed your post almost immediately. I suck at numbers too! I can sign them (I think... ish...) but I panic when I see someone sign them ("F...oh no that was a 9... and now I've missed the rest of them"). So yeah, I need practice. Not sure how that works on this site, do we use the chat rooms? I just tried that Record Video button and got you eight seconds of black screen so that'll need work 🙂
Hey everyone, my name is Yinna. I started ASL in January and am just starting ASL3 on Lifeprint. I can sort-of follow along with The Moth if I slow it down to 50%. I can beat most of those fingerspelling apps but when it's a fluent signer instead of a series of pictures it all comes apart at the seams :-). I would love to sign with people who are at about my level. I'm sure we'll make mistakes, but I need to get over the 'oh dear what was that sign again' hump. What else - I'm in my mid-40s (but please don't hold that against me), I live in California and I love to row. On the ocean. In a very narrow boat.
