ASL practice buddy wanted!

Recommended Posts

Hello! I took a semester of ASL in college about 7 years ago and found it to be SO fulfilling. After thinking about it for years, I've decided that I want to pick it back up and hope to eventually become fluent! I'm currently quite rusty, but found that I latched onto the language with relative ease when I was first introduced. Anyone out there want to chat with a rusty beginner (who also happens to be a fast learner)? I'm on Eastern time if that helps!

Hello there! I'm currently taking ASL in college and would love to study with you, but I am on the Pacific Time Zone. :/ I'm not sure if it would work out.

It may work, Emily! What time (Pacific) are you available to practice? My husband works 2nd shift for the time being, so I'm available until about 7pm Pacific time!

    • Little bit about why I'm interested in ASL. I have always wanted to learn signing and did take a class at a church about 10 years ago for a few weeks. My wife has a severe hearing loss of 90% and has wore hearing aids for 47 years. She communicates well when 1 on 1. her loss started at 45% but has gotten worse over the years. She has not been interested in learning ASL. I want to learn it and hopefully can teach her at home since she wont take a college class with me. I am enrolling in a ASL class my self starting in Jan. 2019 . I have been online with a free program "Start ASL". I want to get more exposure show I'm signing up here also.  
    • 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.
