Seeking Signing Practice Partners


Recommended Posts

Hello!

My name is Reny, and I am searching for opportunities to practice ASL. I am hearing, and I am learning ASL as an independent study for school. I want to learn this language right, which is hard to do without another pair of eyes, so that is why I'm here. I am a novice in ASL, but I do already know some syntax, a handful of signs, and my alphabet, even if I do stumble a bit. I am looking forward to getting to know this community, and I am hoping I can be of assistance to others, as they are to me.

Hello, my name is Terri. I am learning ASL at my community College. In the middle of my first semester. I am enjoying it but need help keeping things fresh and reading fingerspell. It seems SO fast. 

Would love to set up a time/day to have a chat group.

Okay so I have gotten A LOT more responses than I expected, which I very much appreciate. Now I don’t have a lot of free time, and I’ve found someone who I’ve been studying with on this site. I want to make sure that all the people who responded to my post can get a partner, but having such a big group would probably be complicated. So I’m hoping that maybe in this thread people will be able to find someone they would like to work with. I’m very thankful for all the offers, this is a wonderful community but I don’t believe that I can handle this big a group of people. If you can’t find anyone to practice with then I’d be glad to help, but I believe that there are a lot of people in this comment section who also are looking for partners. Thankyou all again!

-Reny

    • i think its great you are designing this game but will there be a big enough market for it? thats something im not sure of. i personally think a really great idea. there are many deaf people who miss out on many things because it isnt designed for a deaf person in mind.
    • Im learning asl because my wife and a few friends are deaf, (2) I am a firefighter and sign language is very handy in a noisy place. I watch closely when meeting some patients and sign to then when i speak to them. if they are deaf it makes it easier for me to pass on information when we are directing traffic at accident scenes. sometimes patients are deaf and i may not know it but it helps us to communicate accurately with other non signers. (3) we have had multiple requests to teach asl in our department so my wife and i are organizing as much information as we can. and (4) it is a lot of fun!
    • Hello out there Im a hearing husband of a deaf wife. Im a retired electrician and safety instructor. while i do know some sigh language this site will help me and some others in our fire department. there are not many deaf people in our community but i have a lot of deaf friends all over we have a heck of a lot of fun and they are quite patient with teaching this fumble fingered old fart that i am. so im very happy to be here!
    • Thanks a million, @tye.is.the.sky , you're a star!
