I took ASL classes two years ago and would like to brush up on my skills.

Hey, my name is Kayla.  I'm from the Rochester, NY where there is a high Deaf/HoH populations thanks to the presence of NTID at RIT.  I recently got a job there and would like to improve upon the skills that I learned a couple of years back.  I made it through three classes, but it has been a while since I've had anybody to practice with. Let me know if you'd like to practice conversational skills!

Kayla, I would be interested in practicing. I am from LaVista Nebraska so our times are a little off, but we can send correspondense back and forth.  let me know if your interested or if you have already found someone. I am not sure if there is a way to message one another, but I am sure we can figure something out. 

Sure, what is the time difference for us? I am available at multiple points during the day, so I feel we could work it out. I'm not sure about guidelines for this site but if it allows you, you can email me at [email protected]. Thanks!

I am sorry I have not gotten back to you. We had three surgeries this month and all of them were bunched together. I sent a small video hoping you can understand it. My time here in Nebraska is Central Standard time. I can facetime through messagner or we can send messages back and forth. 

If we do it this way, I think it might be best to write out what the other person signed. Send it back with the decoded message and put in a new message. Does that make sense?

Let me know I'll watch my email for you

So sorry for the delayed response. I am acting as the maid of honor in my best friend's wedding this summer and it has taken over my life! 

Ok, here's what i got from your post.

"Hi, my name is Linda. I am married. I work and live in West Grand Rapids? Goodbye!"

Let me know if I missed anything...I am rusty.

    • 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
