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 y'all, I'm currently enrolled in a ASL 2 class however I feel like I need more help practice and I don't not have enough people in my life for me to practice. I am also studying to be a speech pathologies which is how I became exposed to the Deaf community. After my summer class is over I don't want to lose the skills and language I have learned.
    • Hey Kelly! Are you taking the ASLPI Evaluation? If not, what competency exam?  I'm asking because I've recently taken an interest in the whole ASL levels concept and was trying to figure out where I stood(I'm self taught).  Anyways, welcome!
    • Hi guys! I'm 35 and hearing but took ASL through college and undergrad. I worked as an interpreter for a bit right after high school. I listed ASL as a competency on a job application (I start Tuesday) and I have to complete a competency exam through Gallaudet and really need to brush up on my skills (it's been way too long!!!). I love to find someone to video chat with the challenge and help me refresh my skills! Thanks so much!!
