i made up a fingerspelling sign and because you are firefighter i want you to just try this one out ok.

the tips of your finger have two side one the side that faces you and the fingerprint. the side going from pointer to pinky equal A through H the middle part of the finger is the sides only but you use half the thumb for a marker and use each side of the finger as you roll it across to make I through P. the last is the easiest as you make Q through X with the side front version again but the finger are now straight up. the Y and Z are just the thumb going toward you for Y and the thumb going away from you. i have made video but i got infected with a lot of diseases and i am afraid to shave or it will spread anyways. please get people to use this alpha numerical fingerspelling as once learned it is impossible to forget and really easy to learn and it would save a really lot of live and i invented when puss was pouring out of my ear. gg.

    • Hi I am taking ASL through our local community college on zoom. The teacher suggested we practice receptive ASL. Seems most in our class can sign but can't read it. I am playing the game and see there are amazing scores. They must have it on max speed and no mistakes? He told us to try to figure out the word instead of individual letters. I'm finding that really hard. What is your average score? When I increase the speed I freeze. I seem to get stuck on f and x.  Grateful for this website t
    • Hi Ryan, I also started to learn ASL to expland my knowlege and be able to communicate with more people. I'm a 21 year old female college student currently enrolled in a two year ASL training program, I have yet to be certified and am coming to the end of my semester soon, we should video chat, you could show me some of your BSL.  -Best, Jela
    • Hello Ryan, my name is Carleigh, and I am currently in my second ASL class at a community college. I would love to learn about some of BSL and how learning that has been for you. I am an 18-year-old female in my final semester in high school. I started taking sign this year and am hoping to either minor in it or major in it in college.  
    • Hiya everyone! I've decided to learn ASL in order to expand the access I have to the worldwide Deaf/hard-of-hearing community. I'm a 21-year-old male living in the UK and have studied BSL for the last three years while also using it in the care sector supporting deaf/blind clients. I am very aware of how the two deaf cultures differ across the Atlantic and want to form first-hand connections with anyone fluent in/learning ASL to broaden my knowledge on any topic relating the signing community in
