ASL Practice Buddy

Hello all! I have been studying ASL on and off for ~5 years.  I completed levels 1-5 at a school with all Deaf teachers. It’s been about 1.5 years since I actually practiced my signing and because of that I’m VERY rusty. I’m looking for an ASL practice buddy to help me expand my vocabulary and to just chat with so my signing stays fresh. I’d like to video chat 1-3x/week using a platform such as Skype or Zoom with “voices off” so that we can utilize our ASL skills and not our English ones. Please comment if you’re interested and we can figure out things from there!

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!

Hey, I'm interested. I've been teaching myself ASL for ~4 years, and I am hearing. I'd really like a practice buddy to get better at reading other people's signs and make sure I'm signing coherently. I can use discord or another social media to video chat and practice :)

    • Hi! My name is Camille. I have a college assignment that requires me to interview anyone who wears cochlear implants, who are hard of hearing or is deaf. I'm hoping we can meet up or maybe set up a virtual meet, like facetime or maybe zoom? I know you're probably wondering why should you help such a random person like me? I don't know why but..I can assure you it's for a good cause. It's for educational purposes. Your time will be much appreciated. If you're interested, please email me
    • Hi Andie! I'm a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. I'm also in school right now taking communications disorders and deaf education. I'm hoping to become an SLP someday. I have an assignment that requires me to meet people who are deaf, hard of hearing or are wearing cochlear implants. Would it be possible for me to interview Josh? I'm also learning ASL, I know some words but I rely heavily on fingerspelling. Please e-mail me if you're available.  My e-mail is [email protected]
    • Hello, I'm Kiara (hearing), currently a student in ASL- English Interpreting program. I'm enrolled in ASL 4. If you are in the EST time zone and looking for a partner, let me know.  
    • Good Afternoon on this very cold, very snowy day in Southwestern Ontario! My name is Lisa & I'm a Day Program Coordinator for Adults with Exceptionalities. I support  a young man named Josh who is aaaaaamzing & I want to help him make meaningful connections with other people who have a hearing impairment. His ASL is quite good, but more than anything, I'd simply like him to socialize! He is very sweet, sensitive & likes to create his own signs sometimes vs  learning the proper ones!
