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

One of the characters is not deaf but rather is unable to speak, and he communicates via sign language. Because a comic is a visual but non-moving medium, I'm trying to figure out the best way to show this. My thoughts right now is to do a couple of panels of him signing main ideas and providing a text translation, since I know it would be imp

    • There are a few youtube channels that are more obscure that can help, especially "Read with ASL" google it with the word youtube appended.  Others are at a more intermediate level, like "IntermediateASL", "ASLInteractive", and of course Bill Vicars.  Talk to Deaf people in your city for both advice and connections.  Go to your community college and ask to talk to an ASL teacher, and tell them about everything.  Find a Deaf club/group in your city, but in-person is much better, especially if they
