Hello!

My name is Tiara, and I am majoring in Physical Therapy while playing basketball at my college. I found out there was an American Sign Language class offered here so I jumped at the chance to take it. Unfortunately, it is only seen as an elective, and not equivalent to a language such as French or Spanish (which I totally don't understand). Currently, I am in the second semester of the class and this is my last one so I have been trying to find places where I could meet others that want to expand and also practice what they have already learned! My schedule is kinda hectic just because of my sport but if you want to try and practice, learn, or even just talk let me know! Thanks and I hope to make new ASL buddies ^_^

    • Hi everyone! My name is Zein, I'm hearing and are working with a few other people on a sci-fi action-platformer VR game that features a deaf main NPC that uses ASL to communicate with the player. The player can sometimes respond with single-word answers by picking up a word bubble that changes the hand shape and then making the corresponding gesture (e.g. pick up the fist for YES, then tilt the controller up and down) I am currently learning signing myself and I'm reaching out to communities to get feedback for authenticity and inclusion. I have some dialogue lines for the character but it would help a lot to get feedback, because I'm sure, a lot of lines / signs, are currently weird or out of place. I already got feedback from a discord community for the first line. I can share this here so you can get a better picture. Randy: Oh my God! There was an earthquake at the excavation site, and some sort of lightning storm. I'm not sure... are you okay? ASL: WOAH! Earthquake there mining place do-do. Loud lightning! Why no-idea. You alright you (eyebrows up)?   Here's me trying it myself but it will be hand-animated once it gets into the game.     Would anybody be intereseted/willing to give their input and feedback? I would share more of Randy's lines here to improve, fix, or correct them. It would be a great help!  Thank you for your time, Zein
    • Holy moly, I was not expecting this many people to respond to my post!😅 I would like to get to know you guys and see if we could possibly work something out. Maybe we could set up a time to be on?
    • hey! im ellie, i've been learning asl for half a year now and i can clearly see myself improving and i want to invest myself with more deaf culture and other people who are learning! 
    • Hi guys! Thanks for replying to my topic. I wouldn’t mind getting some practice. If you ever need a partner just tell me and I’ll see when I’m free. ^^
