Looking for ASL friends who would love practice

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! My name is Skylar, I am looking for people who are interested in practicing ASL. I am a first year ASL student; however, I learned ASL previously from a deaf friend. My dream is to become and interpreter or do anything regarding ASL. I am currently a Psychology major but as I progress more into my ASL class and meet more deaf people I realize how much I really want to change that and possibly switch schools. I love the language and want to perfect my techniques. Any one interested please message me. I would love to share practice and experiences. I have Skype and FT. I could also download Oovoo if that works for other people. Please just let me know. Thank you guys!!

I don't have a skype do you have a snapchat or something so we can chat a little but before video chatting? I'm just cautious with new people online.

    • Hi!  I am a writer, and one of my developing characters is deaf. I really want to delve into deaf culture and really capture everything there is to it.  I started learning ASL about a month ago, and I love it. I am self studying through books, online lesson plans and flashcards. The only thing missing is someone to practice with, even if it's just five minutes a day  
    • Communication plays an essential role in everyone’s life. There are so many benefits if we provide ASL to children in public schools. Like  learning sign language aides young hearing children, including babies and toddlers, in developing oral language quicker. Children learn better with a ASL translator if we provide to them. There numbers of companies that are providing ASL translator services one of them is Languages Unlimited.
    • I would love to help you, i also need someone to practice with. I have been doing ASL for just a couple years and am taking a class in public school for it. but it would be awesome to have a practice buddy to help get better at it.
    • I would suggest using lifeprint.com to learn some basic signs, especially fingerspelling (get GOOD at that), then just go to a Deaf event. Deaf people are friendly and will be glad to meet you, if you have basic vocab. Lifeprint has free dictionary and ASL1 and 2 Course videos. Suggestion: silent dinner. Be ready and able to explain who you are, why you are interested in asl, and some background info. Know basic signs that allow you to ask for repetition, clarification, slower signing, etc. Also, know most ASL 1 vocab if possible, but not required. get to the point of being able to "read " fingerspelling on online practice sites with a ""moderate" speed at least.   Please anyone who's Deaf correct me if I'm wrong about this.
