Hello. My name is Julian an I am currently taking ASL courses at my local community college. My brother lost his hearing about 9 years ago and is Deaf now. I am learning ASL to better communicate with him and I am also excited to be able to use ASL at work.  

I am finishing up with ASL 2 this semester and look forward to ASL 3. I signed up for this forum in hopes of bettering my ASL skills and practicing a bit more. 

I look forward to meeting some great new people. Feel free to hit me up if you’d like to practice or chat.

Hi Julian! My name is Leah, and I'm currently learning ASL as well. I'm not very advanced, more of a beginner really, but if you'd ever like to try video chatting let me know! I probably couldn't help you very much but I could definitely try! If you're interested please let me know!

Happy signing!

    •     Hi Rose,   This is what I TRIED to sign. I’d like to practice ASL with you.  What is your best time to practice?  Morning? Night?  Which?  I work nights until Friday   I can also see I need to adjust my camera.  Hopefully after I get a chance to sign with someone a little more often, I will become a little more fluent.    Thanx! Angelo
    • Hey Irving.   I too am a hearing person learning sign language. I'd love to practice a bit. I'm using free after 5 on week days. (EST timezone). 
    • Here's one of my favorite stories to tell. Notice the role shifts and how aware I keep things at. Very important! Story: "I'm going to tell you a story. So a wood cutter goes to the forest looking for wood, well, trees to cut wood for winter. So he/she goes walking, stops, and sees a nice tree. So he/she gets the ax and starts swinging, hitting it, and says 'TIMBERRR' the tree falls. He/she watches/examines it and says 'nice', and he/she goes on and continues walking, and stops and sees a big tree! He needs this tree  So he gets his ax and starts cutting away. He/she says 'TIMBERRR' but nothing, the tree still stood. 'Hmm weird' thought the wood cutter. Again, 'TIMBERRR'. The tree wouldn't budge, nothing. So he/she searches online locates a tree expert and gives the expert a call. The tree expert answers 'Hi, need help?' Wood cutter replies 'Yes, I have a problem. There's this tree that wont fall.' Expert then says 'Oh really? Well that's weird. Let me go take a look.' 'Okay, see you later". Here comes the tree expert. He comes and sees the tree. 'Hmm, yes I see. I know. That tree is deaf", the wood cutter confused 'What??? The tree is deaf?' 'Yes, you need to finger-spell' 'Oh, okay..." so the wood cutter starts to sign at the tree 'T-I-M-B-E-R' and it falls!!!  Finished (The end)".
    • Hi Derrian, I also tried sending you a message but I couldn't. Sorry for my delay in the reply, I didn't recieved a notification that you commented.  I would love to chat with you sometime, hope we can fix this message thing somehow.   Irving.
