Hello everyone!

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

I'm Ana, I'm 20 years old and I live in North Carolina. I initially became interested in ASL when I was in high school, and fortunately, my high school offered ASL classes. I graduated 2 years ago and I have been trying to not forget ASL but is difficult when you don't have someone to practice or talk with. A year ago I met and worked with a deaf lady and I would always learn from her, I'm not longer at that job since I'm in college now. Right now my ASL level is ok, I know lots of vocabulary and but like I said I have lost practice. I'm hopping to learn and improve with the help of the community!

Hello Ana!

I am also in NC... well WNC lol, But I have been wanting to learn ASL for many years. I'm almost 32, married, and have a bunch of kids! Maybe we can work together to learn more as a team. I know a little bit, as a choir I sang in did some musical composures in sign. But as far as conversational aspects I have very little to offer. Maybe I can learn from you! I had a late cousin who majored in ASL that I loved very much, she also worked with the disabled. I'd like to honor her with something she loved.

    • 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!
