Hi My name is Jax, hearing, and a year 1 college student. I’m based in CA, USA.  I finished ASL 1 class back in Dec 2021, and recently started ASL 2. I’m looking for an ASL study or conversation practice buddy. I find that I need to work on memory recall when I’m in a conversation.

We can video chat, or exchange conversations through videos similar to Snapchat format. I’m available on Snapchat, Instagram, fb messenger, Flipgrid, zoom, and skype.

Hi Jax,

I'm Aislyn I saw your posts on helpful ways to immerse yourself in ASL culture. I love the idea of video diaries!

I have not had any formal training but I love watching Lifeprint videos by Dr. Bill Vickers. Not sure if you'll see this, but would you want to practice together? I have all the same video tools but flipgrid

Hello. I've been a member to this site for a few years now. I frequently get on here and try to practice signing with people who are interested. If signing practice is what you're looking for, I'll be in the chatrooms on this site for the next hour or so.

    • 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?
