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.

    • 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!
