Hi all.

I’m 44 years old.  Just wanting to learn ASL. Gonna take an actual class in January. Been learning some online (Youtube) so I know the alphabet and some basic beginning signs/greetings, but looking forward to learning more.

Married for 22 years, 3 children aged from 15-20..  2 dogs, 7 saltwater fish.  Like aviation, sports, fast cars (I drive a Tesla Model 3) (mid-life crisis car, I suppose).

By the way, my profile pic was after quarantining for a while with no haircut, no shaving.

Cheers!

Hi!

I'm Ronnie, I'm from the UK. I use ASL as a gateway for expressive art but still class myself as a learner. I'm selective mute and I find ASL helps bridge the gap between hearing people and my voice. (Which just doesn't seem to work! Haha) I can understand BSL and ASL but prefer communicating in ASL.

    • This is excellent news. i'm on pacific time because I'm on the west coast. I'd be willing to get together sometime between morning and noon here. I'll check this site in the morning. I hope you are actively checking this site.
    • Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
