ASL Online Practice Buddy?

Recommended Posts

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"😊

    • Hi, Jason! My name is Joy and I would love a pal to practice with!  I live in the great city of Austin, Texas and work as a teacher. I need to seriously improve my signing for my work. Although ideally, we would also have someone from the Deaf community with us, I am certain that there would be great value in the 2 of us signing together, novices we may be. Now I am going to attempt to record something like this in a video for you. Hope to hear from you soon... Joy Ok, guess who! So i went to record this (and I recorded a video the other day on this computer, so I know it works), and it told me that my camera and microphone were blocked and that I need to unblock them. But i cannot figure out how! Can you help?
    • Back in the 1990s I was a slam poet, and I've been told that my signing is particularly theatrical as a result. I know that the sign for THEATER is backwards pinwheeling of thumbs-up "A" hands in front of your chest; but is there a separate sign for THEATRICAL, or do I simply sign THEATER in an exaggerated way?
    • I just learned about Switched at Birth, and began watching it on Netflix this week. Have you seen that video of Sean Berdy signing the entire alphabet in four seconds? Pretty amazing.
