"Hello, my name is Libby. I am deaf, I sign slow, I am also new to sign language and I like talking to other deaf people like me, Bye!" So as you can see in this video I am super new to learning sign language, please only helpful comments and no hurtful comments. I was diagnosed completely deaf in one ear and 87% in the other when I was 1 and a half, Now I am completely deaf in both ears. I don't talk very well and I need someone to video chat with that could help me because I don't know anyone who knows sign language. I am 15 and really need to become more independent.

Hello Libby, 

I too am new to ASL and would love to sign with you.  The only problem is you sign too fast for me.   I would love to chat with you if you don't mind me having to slow you down for a while.  If you are interested, please let me know here  or search for me on skype.  Search for Angelo Michel Houma      I look forward to hearing from you!  

If I am too slow, you can let me know and I will no be  offended!                                                                                                                                   

Thanx!

Angelo

    • 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.
