Happy to meet you!

I'm Becky, and I'm 63 years old.  I have always wanted to learn ASL, even though I've never known any Deaf people.  I am just finishing up a Conversational ASL class at a community college and I love it even more than I expected to!  I'm going on through Level 2 and Level 3, even though I'm not looking for a second career or anything  ;)  I just love the language!  So expressive and yet simple.  My one trouble is that so far, I haven't found anyone local to sign with, so all of my practice is solo except on class nights.  I hope to be able to make some online friends to practice and share signing with, on this excellent website!

Hi Becky,  I'm Angelo - 58 years old.  Just getting started with ASL.  I'm on lesson 5 of LifePrint and did a little other reading before LifePrint.  I'd love to practice, but I would be at a much lower/slower level than you.  If you are fine with that - let me know.  Thanx!  Angelo

    • 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!
