Hi everyone!

Recommended Posts

My name is Kait and I'm 20 years old. I'm hearing, but I don't remember ever not knowing some random signs (for ex. eat, talk, more, water) and how to fingerspell. My mom (also hearing) used to be fluent in ASL and these "basics" were how we used to communicate when I had gymnastics meets. If the team needed a snack, water, or medicine I could tell her and she would do what she needed to get it for us. Little 8 year old me felt SO cool, hahaha.

I took ASL 1 and 2 in high school, where I learned more random signs and grammar. I struggle with real conversations (in class they were all scripted) and am hoping to practice more and become fluent someday. I'm finishing up my last semester of Spanish that's required for my major, so I  can focus on ASL now.

    • That sounds like a great plan! I'll be there when I can :)
    • Hello, I am Amy.
    • I like your idea! I'll try to be there.
    • I've noticed there's an increasing amount of people attempting to use the chat rooms on the website to practice. I'm here to possibly discuss a solution. If people read this, we could arrange to have people congregate to the chatroom at around 9 pm EST two days a week. At this time most people would be off work and have a little bit of free time. My suggestion is everyone tries to hop on around 9 pm EST either every Friday (as per the calendar) or every Wednesday and Saturday, where people get two opportunities per week to meet others. What do you guys think? I try to check the chat every other day at around 8 pm EST.   My ultimate suggestion is 9 pm EST on Friday. What do you guys think?
