Looking for ASL friends!!
Mikaela posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHello! My name is Mikaela and I am a freshman in college. I have been signing for 4 year now and have a passion for the culture and language. As I am in college now studying social work, I am not able/don't have the time to study ASL also. I really want to keep my asl and use it for my career but I have no one I can sing with. Thats why I am here! Im looking for people to have a ASL connection with and to basically only sign to each other. Id love to get two know you, become friends, and grow our passion our ASL together! P.S. I am also a ASL tutor so if you need help, I am here
Rebekah Jones posted a topic in ASL Practice ZoneI would appreciate any help available to finish out my ASL 1 class and get better at communicating easily before moving on to ASL 2 next school year.
Teriyaki 454 posted a topic in Job VacanciesMy name is Theresa and I'm an ASL tutor on Wyzant. I've had a lot of fun tutoring on there and have gotten great reviews. Most of my students are beginners or intermediate learners, and I would love some more students. If you're at all interested in lessons, I charge $30/hour, but I'm flexible on rates. Let me know! Thanks!
I'm looking for someone to teach me ASL. My local colleges teach it, even my local adult learning center teaches it. However, two things there - neither one has an ASL class until next semester. And - Neither one has a beginning, or, ASL 1 class until next fall Plus - they are both damned expensive, not to mention lab fees and textbooks! I didn't pay to learn the basics of American English; why should I have to pay to learn the basics of another language? I never understood that one... (My parents taught me the basics, school and society taught me the rest.) I have tried some of the online free courses, but they are... useless. There is no base. What I get from them is: Here is a sign for a particular word. Here is another sign for another word. Here is yet another sign for yet another word. And so on and so on. How do those words go together? Grammar, syntax, sentence structure...? What is the "etymology" (It is a language after all!) of a particular sign? Why that sign and not another one? One great example of what you don't get from a video is this: I just recently heard of a guy named Clerc and another one name Gallaudet. Both rather important to sign language in general and quite important to American Sign Language, one would think; yet not mentioned in any video lessons. So, where can I go where I can: Not pay an arm and a leg Learn the history Learn about the "etymology" (I use quotes because I don't know if that is the proper term) Learn proper form of the signs Learn proper grammar and finally - be able to practice with someone who knows what they are doing (so I don't pick up any bad habits!) Has anyone ever heard of Bill Vicars and ASLU? Is he still teaching? (His website is very out-dated) Thanks for any assistance that can be provided. I never got a response from my intro post, so I thought I would post here with more information. CW
