Hey!

I am Sneha, International student pursuing my Masters in USA. I want to learn sign language and I have learnt few signs in the past few days. I would like to further improve my signing by communicating with people that share the same interest. Best way to learn is through practice with peers. So here I am, looking forward to be fluent in ASL. It would be helpful if someone can guide me and become friends along the process.

    •     Hi Rose,   This is what I TRIED to sign. I’d like to practice ASL with you.  What is your best time to practice?  Morning? Night?  Which?  I work nights until Friday   I can also see I need to adjust my camera.  Hopefully after I get a chance to sign with someone a little more often, I will become a little more fluent.    Thanx! Angelo
    • Hey Irving.   I too am a hearing person learning sign language. I'd love to practice a bit. I'm using free after 5 on week days. (EST timezone). 
    • Here's one of my favorite stories to tell. Notice the role shifts and how aware I keep things at. Very important! Story: "I'm going to tell you a story. So a wood cutter goes to the forest looking for wood, well, trees to cut wood for winter. So he/she goes walking, stops, and sees a nice tree. So he/she gets the ax and starts swinging, hitting it, and says 'TIMBERRR' the tree falls. He/she watches/examines it and says 'nice', and he/she goes on and continues walking, and stops and sees a big tree! He needs this tree  So he gets his ax and starts cutting away. He/she says 'TIMBERRR' but nothing, the tree still stood. 'Hmm weird' thought the wood cutter. Again, 'TIMBERRR'. The tree wouldn't budge, nothing. So he/she searches online locates a tree expert and gives the expert a call. The tree expert answers 'Hi, need help?' Wood cutter replies 'Yes, I have a problem. There's this tree that wont fall.' Expert then says 'Oh really? Well that's weird. Let me go take a look.' 'Okay, see you later". Here comes the tree expert. He comes and sees the tree. 'Hmm, yes I see. I know. That tree is deaf", the wood cutter confused 'What??? The tree is deaf?' 'Yes, you need to finger-spell' 'Oh, okay..." so the wood cutter starts to sign at the tree 'T-I-M-B-E-R' and it falls!!!  Finished (The end)".
    • Hi Derrian, I also tried sending you a message but I couldn't. Sorry for my delay in the reply, I didn't recieved a notification that you commented.  I would love to chat with you sometime, hope we can fix this message thing somehow.   Irving.
