Hey eveyrone! My name is Izabel, I am 18 and have learned ASL in highschool. I took all the way till' ASL 3 and I love it. But, unforunately my college doesn't have ASL classes and I'm afraid of losing all what I've learned, and I hope to be able to a fluent conversation if I ever come in contact with someone deaf or hard of hearing or a signer. It would be great if someone intermediate or advanced could practice with me, however I am open to help beginners. It would still be technically practicing, as long as I get sommething, I'll be happy! I'm not really on facebook anymore, so I'll try my best not to lag if you message me :)

I would also like to chat sometime! I would consider myself an intermediate (maybe advanced? I don't want to get big headed) signer and have taken four semesters at my school - I also plan on entering an ITP after I finish undergrad. Do you have Glide?

Hi, I just started ASL 1,  I would love to participate in a ASL video chat room until I feel comfortable with joining a formal group. I have always been fascinated with ASL but never had the opportunity to learn the language. I recently re-entered the workforce on a part-time bases working with stroke victims as a Developmental Specialist with a local heath care agency who in turn suggested that I enroll in the ASL program at our local county community college. I'm having a great time  and I feel that this would be a giant step toward acclimating myself with the Deaf community. Looking forward to simply saying "hello"😊

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
    • I am new at learning ASL so I could use the practice 
    • Thanks Lysandor your reply it's very helpful! 
    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
