New to ASL


Recommended Posts

My name is Dyanna and I am a recent college graduate with a bachelors in biology living in New Mexico. When I was younger my middle school was attached to a hard of hearing school and I never was able to interact with those students. Years later I've finally made the jump to actually learning ASL because it looks cool and you can use it in situations that require silence to communicate (and I want to be sneaky and talk to people in secret lol). I have stated learning the basics on this website called SignSchool and it has been very helpful but, I would love to practice with someone else to actually solidify what I've been learning. So hit me up and lets practice together!!!!

I am new to signing. I have wanted to learn, but never took the steps until now. I am a student on online learning. I want to be able to have someone to practice with and become fluent in signing. What time are you available? I live in Nebraska and believe we are an hour or two ahead of you. Let me know if you are interested and what time we could get together.

Hi guys ! I am currently taking an ASL class and I would eventually like to become fluent but I have no one to practice with.. I used to have a friend in high school on the bus who was deaf and she taught me a lot of ASL but then she moved away and we lost touch unfortunately. I would love to talk to you guys sometime and get some practice in!

    • I haven’t had in-depth conversations with anyone who had to use sign language their whole life owing to the fact that I haven't met many, and even the ones I did, I just didn't. So, I will ask my questions here: I know there's no other option, but I am more interested in the logistics part--how did you learn sign language as a person with hearing/speech impairments? Since language (any mode of communication) works on consensus, what was your formal training in sign language?
    • Sorry if this is the wrong category, I picked the one that seemed to fit best.  How would I go about finger spelling two words in a row? How would I show the space between them? 
    • Good Luck for the ASL 1 online school. I won't be able to provide you with any knowledge or advice for conversation skills. Hope you get a reliable resource. I can help you out regarding assignments as I know a person who has taken online assignment writing services in UK. He told me, that he was extremely satisfied by their team of writers, because they provided him guidance on assignment writing and helped improved his grades
