Hi everyone! My name is Tina and I currently live in WA state. I started learning ASL for my work with non-verbal elementary school students. New to this type of work, I was in a class and a little girl was signing "toilet" for 5 mins before I asked someone what it meant. Horrified, I immediately signed up for ASL at my local community college. I fell in love day 1 and completed ASL 2 and 3. As there isn't a Deaf community nearby and I've exhausted the local college, I was looking for a place that offered the opportunity for practice and additional learning. Looking forward to meeting everyone. T

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc

    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
