Hey there!

I'm Judith and I am currently studying British Studies at a German University. I also speak German, French and Italian, but I recently got interested in learning sign language. 

I don't know anybody with whom I could communicate in ASL, but this does not stop me from being motivated about it. 

I'd love to get in touch with some of you in order to support each other in the process.

 

Lots of love, Judith

Hi judith and carter. I am new as well, here in Texas. Lifeprint.com I understand is an amazing website. I speak English, Spanish, and am working on French, and want to start in on ASL. 

As far as finding native ASL speakers in your area, call different churches, they sometimes have groups that get together.

Also, google deaf/hard of hearing associations in your area, and contact local college teachers of ASL for advice.

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
    • I am new at learning ASL so I could use the practice 
    • Thanks Lysandor your reply it's very helpful! 
    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
