Hello,

I'm starting my beginner level ASL class and need to find some one willing to help me practice while I'm at work in the late late night. I chose ASL because I feel like it's a drastically under rated and necessary language in the modern age. I'm prior law enforcement (and I'm planning to go back into it after college) and on multiple occasions I was put in a situation where I had to try to communicate with a deaf person who was irate or distraught about the situation. In every situation, no one knew a hearing signer or where we could even reach one. I never want to put someone in that kind of situation again, I'm there to help keep things calm and my lack of communication skills only made things worse for everyone.

Sorry about the video I made it at the end of my work shift (4:00 AM) so I was REALLY tired.

I look forward to signing with you

    • 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
