My name is Hally and I am a student at the University of Kansas studying to be an american sign language interpreter. I have recently finished ASL 2 and would love to practice signing with signers more advanced than I to learn and improve my skills as well as make friends and become involved in the deaf community! If you're interesting in chatting please feel free to say hi :)

Hello Hally,

Welcome to the group.  I lived in Lawrence for about 10 years and my daughter graduated from KU about 5 years ago.  I love the area.

I'd love to chat but I am an absolute infant when in comes to ASL.  I'd be mu-u-uch to slow for you.   So far, I've just been signing with myself and a couple of people on this site.  I'm going to get with a group next week I hope to start signing face-to-face with them to build up to a kindergarten level. 

Anyway - I just wanted to welcome you. 

Angelo

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
