Hello.  My name is Steve.  Sorry for taking a long time to write my intro.  I am hearing 46 years old gay man living in south Texas. I have one year of learning American sign language under my belt.  I completed one year in April 2021.  I love signing.  I love learning languages.  I speak Spanish as well.  I attempted to learn sign language in 1998 from a book.  The book was just black and white drawings and it was very difficult to understand the signs.  I tried again in 2005, but with no luck.  I finally dove into it a year ago.  I had a very good reason for wanting to learn; personal reasons.  Now here I am, going into the second year of signing.  It is very difficult and a bit boring to learn on your own.  Let me clarify, I have two qualified ASL instructors.  I do not see them every month, but I have stuck with them for over a year now.  When I do not see them, I send them videos of my progress.  I sign to myself all the time.  I finger spell when I drive.  But I have no ASL friends to sign with.  Hoping to make some friends, but until then, I continue to learn on my own, with the help of my two instructors.

    • Yes! I'm very interested! I would love to have a practice buddy. I am hearing, and I want to have real practices with someone instead of just looking in the mirror while signing XD . I'm a beginner, maybe I can learn a bit from you!
    • HEYA! I'm hearing, but I really wanna become fluent in sign language so I can broaden my circle and to learn more about the deaf community. I know it must be hard out there for those who are deaf in such a pre-dominant hearing environment, and I wanna lighten that load by learning ASL. Whether Deaf, or Hearing... Can we practice together? I'd say I'm a beginner. I know the alphabet, and how to fingerspell. But my speed is lacking. I know some phrases as well. Would love to meet you!
    • the method i know will work is  this android program and then this icon at the bottom inside  then when it happens as i tried to send in for them to modify the match game to use the videos too with the augmentation of hover backlighting ones previously done to make you sure that you got it right. remember video match game is the answer for the language i learned sign fingerspell in six hours.
