Hi, I've been learning sign from Bill Vicars' YT videos almost exclusively for nearly five months, and highly suggest reviewing vocabulary through the Handspeak site to review the expressive facial "morphemes" for each word, as they are very clearly defined there.  Also the Handspeak site's "Reverse ASL Dictionary" is very useful when remembering the sign but forgetting the word, which comes in handy for people like me with a tiny little bit of non-verbal aphasia.  Also something that's amazingly helpful is Bill Vicars' Fingerspelling Tool, as well as the Fingerspelling Game on this site~~

Thanks Amber for the YouTube link.  It would be great if someone would create a new version of this, however I did watch the first video and found it to be very helpful. I have followed Bill Vicars YouTube videos and have taken a couple of in person sign language classes.  I still struggle with receptive finger spelling and signing in conversation.  I pick up a sign or two in conversation, but the trick is putting it all together. Thanks again.

    • This is excellent news. i'm on pacific time because I'm on the west coast. I'd be willing to get together sometime between morning and noon here. I'll check this site in the morning. I hope you are actively checking this site.
    • Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
