Canadian ASL learner

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I'm Stacey, 30 years old and Canadian!
I was 1st introduced to ASL when I was about 8 and my mother signed up for an interpreter course I helped her study and learned quite a bit but she got sick and didn't finish the course.
A few years ago I was working at my local YWCA and we had a regular hard of hearing client. I knew a few signs and was able to finger spell some things but decided I should start learning again. I have tried Memerise (not great course options) and follow some great pages on Facebook, but would really like to practice with people.
I have tried teaching my husband some signs but he's having trouble picking it up since I don't know enough to sign constantly.

I have recently come across some PSE videos and am having trouble with the different structure.

I am very involved in musical theatre & choir, I love planning games nights and escape rooms with friends, and enjoy genealogy, reading, and photography.

Looking forward to exploring this group and meeting people!

    • Hello! I am looking for a practice buddies/friends. I always loved ASL is very interesting to me and I would love to someday become fluent. I know some of the basics. I need a lot of practice, I am really slow at finger spelling, again I am a beginner. I truly do want to get better. I want my hands and conversation to flow. For anyone that is looking to practice the basics let me know or anyone that wants to just practice in front of someone else to get the awkwardness I'm willing to watch, it will help me pick up some of the basics. 
    • Hi .. I’d love to talk to you in sign and message I’m trying to learn asl .. I’m form the UK but find ASL way more fun to learn than BSL .. message me back soon 😊
    • I am in ASL 2 at my college and have been wanting to get much better at asl. I do my best to study but it would be some much easier if i had someone to talk to who knew ASL fluently. I severely lack in facial expressions only because i feel like i look ridiculous. I would love if anyone here would want to help me out with going over my lessons and sentence sturggure, oh lord i need help with sentence structure 😅 Thank you for your time!
