Looking for Practice Partners and Possible Friends

Hello, my name is Kleen, I am 23. I have two semesters left of my community college to receive my French Associate of Arts undergraduate degree in 2022. I study many languages including French (obviously), ASL, Japanese, Korean and am starting Mandarin this coming fall 2021. Languages are something I enjoy, including their cultures and would like to incorporate them into my life by finding friendships and partnerships with people alike.

I am, in a way, desperate for a person near my age or a group who are open to helping each other with improving our signing since I am unable to find local gigs to meet people with the same interest. My ASL is still very basic and I have the most issue with forming sentences (verb, subject, adjective...what goes where) As friends, your job isn't to teach me, but to aid our development while enjoying the company of another. As learning partners, we may make mistakes as we improve our skills, but at least we can learn from it and move forward.

I have Telegram amd Skype which works wonderfully with ASL chats.

Hello All!!! My name is Kim, and I am just starting out on my ASL learning journey. I have always been pulled to learn ASL. I am not hearing impaired and do not know anyone personally who is, however I desire to connect with all and ASL I feel is my calling. I desire to learn, advocate and fully immerse my self in the culture in hopes of building true friendships and alliances. 
 

Be inspired and inspire!

xoxo KIM 💜

    • 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!
