Hello everyone!

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.

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
