Canadian ASL learner

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 all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
