Hi everyone!  My name is Wendy A.  I am a middle aged woman learning ASL and am eager to meet some other middle aged women also interested in learning and/or practicing ASL…nothing against all you young-uns!!  It’s just that it would be really fun to be able to laugh about some of the finer aspects of growing older as we practice signing together.  So, please, ladies, let’s connect!!!  There’s a great game called Marco Polo that makes it real easy to send and receive videos that you can watch at your own leisure.

I would be interested in signing with you. I am a middle aged woman learning ASL - I am taking a 201 class at this time. I would love all the practice I can get as I am on a trajectory to get a Proficiency Certification in ASL. Please let me know when you are available so we can start a Zoom practice chat!

Hi Teri!  Wonderful!!!  It would be great to practice signing with you!  So, I’m not too computer savvy and am actually not too sure of how this site works.  But, I’ve used zoom and FaceTime, so just need a little help getting started.  How do you and I start communicating privately?

Hello again, Teri!!  So I’ve had a little time to learn about this site and I realize we can do a video chat right on here and that, perhaps, was your intention!  I think it’s a GREAT idea!  We can get to know each other, a little bit.  I am busy in the morning and have a meeting around 4 p.m.   I can sign with you in the afternoon or in the evening/night.  Like you, I’m hoping to become proficient in ASL and I am SO EXCITED to get started practicing!! If you’re interested, let me know.  I can open a room and call it “Mid Age Ladies” and set it for 2 people.  How does that sound?

That sounds great! I am taking ASL201 right now and I meet for class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but am available the other nights of the week and weekends. Just doing a video chat and signing as we get to know each other is perfect. I too am striving for proficiency so the more we can practice the better. I have some time tomorrow (9-6) or Wednesday evening this coming week. Just let me know.

    • I can't believe I just found this awesome website .... love everything I see on it!
    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
