Hello from a student

Recommended Posts

Hello all. My name is Brandon and I am five weeks into my first ASL course at the local junior college. I ignored school for a long time, so I'm an old man at 35 attending college with a bunch of kids! Anyways, I decided to take ASL because I've always found it interesting and it fit into my schedule. I have to say it's one of my favorite classes. And, like with anything, I need to find a place to practice outside of class. So I googled around and found this site! Shortly after I purchased a web cam and now I'm excited to stumble my way through discussing with some people. I hope to see people in the chat rooms, and I hope your patience is there since I am still pretty new.

Take care!

--Brandon

Hi Brandon!

I'm Crystal, a non-traditional student in Alaska.  I am looking for someone to practice with also.  You know Alaska, more animals than people.  Animal sign language is different than ASL and you need good running shoes with them.

If you want to practice, send me a message and we can go online.

Brandon,  I didn't start college toward my career until I was 25.  I didn't start learning ASL until I was 38. Don't feel bad for starting late.

    • Hello! I'm Mikyla. I've wanted to learn sign language for the longest time but, as the title suggests, I'm quite lost. I've considered trying to get in touch with the signing community in my area, however I'm not necessarily aquainted with anyone. To be honest, I'd really like to practice with someone or just have someone teach me about the community and such. I'd really love to learn more.
    • Hello! I'm a pure beginner too and have no where to start, but it'd be fun to learn more with you :)
    • I genuinely have no clue what I'm doing but like, intro ig? Learning ASL has been a goal of mine for a while because my mental health disorders cause me to go nonverbal sometimes, and its generally when I need to ask someone for help. I'm a complete beginner and I've been struggling to learn, so I'm giving this a try. I know the ASL alphabet, however not perfectly, and a few things like mother, father, boy, girl, and like..thats it. I'm really trying, but kinda falling short.
    • That sounds like a great plan! I'll be there when I can :)
