Hi!! I'm new to signing, and the site. From Canada. Your signs are different... I don't know how to explain really which ones, how you say what age you are, and the number sign looks different too. All a little confusing for someone new. Do you know a sign for the word "website" ? I try to search it and get websites for asl, but not the sign for the word, lol.

@PenrosePirateHey! Welcome to the site! Yeah if you're signing in Canada, you'll likely see different variations of what we use here in America, although that stands true even for different states and counties within the U.S.  If you're ever wondering which version of a sign to use, ask around your local Deaf community, and use what they do.  Anyway, about how I signed my age, I actually agree it does look weird!  It seems odd for a couple reasons, first because I didn't sign "I AM" or "ME" before my age, and that's because I had already signed it once at the beginning of my list of things about me, so it was unnecessary to sign it again.  Secondly because I used a version of the sign for "AGE-19" that my local community uses but I've not seen just about anywhere else.  Here's a good video that explains signing your age pretty well:

 

For the number itself, I used the first variation shown in this video:

And as far as the sign for website, I use the W-W-W version, essentially a W handshape  that you bounce twice while moving slightly to the right.  The second sign I do in the vid below is "ONLINE" or "INTERNET", just cause it seemed relevant :)

Sorry for the spam, hope this helps!

Hi Daron, 

You mentioned that these chat rooms aren't the greatest.   These are the only chat rooms I've been in.  What do the other chat rooms have to offer?   I just got skype and chatted with my daughter once.  I signed just as poorly in skype as I do in these chat rooms.

    • Hi all, I tried to learn a ASL years ago, but didn't get very far, as learning resources were harder to come by. I have always wanted to pursue it again. Recently, after seeing a few videos and movies that renewed my excitement, I enrolled in an online course. However, the most effective way to learn a language is to put it to use. So here I am. I hope to be able to practice with like-minded individuals. 
    • Hello! My name is Heather and I am interested in ASl because of my Deaf/hard of hearing family. My husband and two of our four children are D/HH. My husband has a moderate to severe hearing loss, our oldest son, 24-years-old has a mild to moderate hearing loss and our youngest son, 9-years-old has a moderate to severe hearing loss and speech issues. Their hearing loss is a congenital progressive sensorineural hearing loss. My husband and oldest son have lost more of their residual hearing fairly slowly over time but our youngest has lost his at a faster rate and he relies on sign to communicate because of his hearing loss and speech. He has an educational interpreter in school who is amazing! He has picked up on sign quickly but we have struggled to learn. With our youngest identifying with the amazing Deaf community, the fact that he is losing his residual hearing quickly and his hearing aids are not effective, and the need to communicate with him in sign daily I feel anxious to learn and become fluent. I have loved the Deaf community members that we have met and really want to be able to communicate with others. I look forward to learning and communicating on here!
