Hi there!

My name is Kendall. I'm a student of speech, language, and hearing sciences who is minoring in ASL. I originally started school with the intent of becoming an ASL interpreter, but life got in the way and I moved far from any schools that have an interpreting program. Now I'm studying to be a speech-language pathologist, but I still love ASL and very much want to improve my signing (as well as learn as much about Deaf culture and history as I can!). I would be thrilled to find other students to video chat with, as I'm desperately in need of practice. I'm currently in intermediate-level classes.

Oh I've never heard of that one! Do you have a preference? What's your Skype? I'll go ahead and add you. I'm going to bed now but will be back online in the morning! I'm excited to meet another student who wants to get some practice, it's hard to find study buddies.

    • If you are looking to become an ASL interpreter, you will need to have a bachelors in something.  The governing board for interpreters requires that you have a bachelors in order to sit for the exam. I think that to be a teacher of the deaf you do not have to have a degree in deaf education, but you would need a teaching certificate.
    • Hi, my name is Mell. I'm currently taking an ASL 101 class at Brookdale Community College and I have a project coming up where a partner and I are going to sign a song (A Whole New World from Aladdin). I'm writing out my gloss and have some questions about certain parts. If anyone could help that would be amazing, thank you!
    • I inspected the link it is a legit url, no signs of it being an affiliate link of any sort so I personally don't believe any profiteering would come of this. I'm new here but I think this is a great idea to spread the network of ASL; Allowing more to connect with each other. Thank you in my humble oppinion, this is a fantastic ideal.
    • Hello everyone, I'm Rj I hope your all doing amazing! I'm here to genuinely relearn Sign as its been many years without Signing I've lost quite a bit of knowledge. I'll Pick up fast, I'm going to be practicing with my mother Tammy she is half deaf and also hard of hearing on her right side. I was deaf for a few years because of a bad doctor and a horrible allergic reaction to a medication called "Gantrisin" which caused tissue damage and ruptured both my eardrums. After some surgeries and tubes I eventually regained my hearing and subsequently forgot much of what I once knew. I really have a soft spot for the deaf and hard of hearing community. Our family is a military family so we moved a lot, and I've lost touch with those I used to be close with that could Sign. I really would like to become fully fluent so I will hopefully be able to help others, meet new friends, or do some translating, I just hope to help and be happy make others happy as well. Peace
