Hi everyone! (^o^)/

Recommended Posts

Hello (again)!

My name is Nana, I live in Canada and I have started to learn ASL about a year ago. 

I completed the level 102; I can sign casually on familiar topics, but I’m quite bad at signing numbers lol.

I like anime, mangas, romans, illustration, witchcraft (sorry, I mean I’m into Wicca lol) martial arts and travelling. 

I’m looking forward to met new signers :D

Hi Nana,

I just registered with this site and noticed your post almost immediately. I suck at numbers too! I can sign them (I think... ish...) but I panic when I see someone sign them ("F...oh no that was a 9... and now I've missed the rest of them").

So yeah, I need practice.

Not sure how that works on this site, do we use the chat rooms?

I just tried that Record Video button and got you eight seconds of black screen so that'll need work 🙂

Hehe, I’m bad with numbers since day 1; I always had a hard time with math and numbers, asl is no exception.

I didn’t try the chat rooms so far because apparently they don’t work on tablet. Since that i cannot go on the website from my workplace, I always have my iPad with me, but for this particular matter it’s not useful.

I have another “pen pal” (or should I say “signpal?) and we send videos to each other through DMs, but I don’t mind using Hangouts or Snapchat as well (but I prefer Hangouts since I watch each video a dozen of times to make sure I understand at least 75% of it ) :D

Would you be interested in trying a live conversation on Skype or Hangouts? The thing with video is that I can practice beforehand and also take my time understanding it. I know that's useful, but I can do that with YouTube videos (in fact, that's what I do).

But what if you're actually dependent on ASL for communication? I want to throw myself off the deep end and see how far I get. Preferably with another learner so that we won't be embarrassed asking for repetition several times.

What do you think?

    • Hello everyone, we are a postgraduate team from Trinity College Dublin attempting to gauge interest in a sign language learning application idea. The app would be similar to Duolingo but built around automatic sign recognition technology, where a user could sign for the app and receive feedback on their gestures legibility. Currently we’re still trying to figure out if an app like this would be of interest to sign language learners or if we’ve completely misjudged the potential audience.
    • salut! my name is vario and i am hearing and currently learning sign language! i am 17 as well it would be nice to meet you!
    • Hello! I am 32 and a Montessori Upper Elementary teacher of 4th-6th graders located outside Seattle, WA.  In college I majored in Sign Language interpreting for about 1.5 years before I realized it wasn't quite the right major for me. I absolutely loved holding conversations in ASL, but I really struggled balancing taking sounds in while simultaneously signing. I later was diagnosed with ADHD and learned more about my brain, and that my brain has a really hard time holding words and messages
    • I tried to connect to the event yesterday and even sent a message to the organizer and this site's administrator to find out how to do so.  I am still waiting for a response.  I was unable to access the event yesterday.  I'm guessing that it's no longer offered and should be removed from the calendar.
