Hello, my name is Reggie, and I've recently decided to learn sign language. After some unfortunate events in recent years, talking has become quite the burden on my psyche, and I do almost anything I can to avoid it. My therapist suggests that I have simply become selectively mute, which, when taken into consideration of everything that has happened and my past mental history, it rather makes sense. So, here I am, ready to learn a whole new way of speaking. 

If anyone has any tips or would like to help me, that would be greatly appreciated. I am, in fact, particularly interested in video chatting and any form of conversing through sign language, since I live in a very isolated rural area and there is no one here for me to practice ASL with. 

Once again, if anyone would like to or possibly could help me, that would be wonderful and I thank you.

That would be lovely, thank you. I would also love to chat with you some time in the near future as well. You may message me whenever you like, though please do not be upset if I don't answer now or right away, since I am experiencing fluctuations in the hours at my job. 

Please though, do message me whenever the feeling occurs, it is not unwarranted in the least and is quite welcome. I only hope the same goes for me.

Sure thing, you may also contact me when you feel like it. And likewise, I may not reply as fast, but sure will do as soon as I can.

    • Hey, 
      My name is Lex. I am American but settling down in Korea. For the tourism industry, I want to be able to provide ASl as well. Most HOH/Def students in Korea study ASL well so this would be the most universal sign language that I could learn. 

      I am a complete beginner. So looking to take tips from anyone. 

      Thank you. 
    • Hi everyone, my name is Lindsay, I'm 28 years old, and have CP (cerebral palsy). ASL has become the most useful tool in my life, to help me communicate with others around me, and in my community. I would like to learn more sign language to help me communicate with others in my life, to make new friends, and meet new people. I know the basic signs, and a little more.. I'm not able to verbally communicate due to my CP, so being able to learn more singing would be wonderful!!
    • This is the perfect place to post this!  In my experience, the ILY handshape version is more friendly and succinct, good for goodbyes to friends or lovers(works for groups too).  The  I, Love, You version is more emotive, and can be used more emphatically.  I would use it for emphasis or if you're trying to make a stronger point(body movement and facial expression are vital).  Hope this helps!
