Hi, I'm Katy and am 18 years old and love the concept of sign language. I'm in university and want a second language. I am trying to find someone to help me to be fluent in it.

    • Hello all,  The reason I searched for and am making this thread is because I am considering taking up studying ASL. I am going to graduate from college in May with my degree in psychology, hoping to get into community outreach work. I am wondering if learning ASL would help me professionally as well as personally. I currently reside in a small mountain town in Maryland, but am planning to move to the Washington D.C. or Baltimore area by end of summer. I know there are great benefits to knowing ASL, one of which being able to interact with members of the deaf community. But as most of you must know, learning any language is a major investment in time and resources. I honestly can't remember the last time I encountered someone who was deaf or used ASL as their primary form of communication. My sister works in a busy retail establishment in downtown D.C., and she told me that she cannot remember a single instance where she encountered someone who used ASL to communicate. Would it be useful for me to know this language? I'm sorry if this post sounds utilitarian, but I want to ascertain how useful this will be for me. It's not as if one can invest in and learn a language overnight and I honestly don't want to waste my time.  
    • Hey, my name is Scott, I'm new to this site.  Have been learning ASL for about a year but do not have anyone to practice with. Looking to improve and make new friends. 
    • Hi! I would love to be your ASL buddy! I've known ASL for a year
    • Hello! My name is Samantha Carstairs and I am a University student living in the Netherlands, but originally from Texas. I started learning ASL when I was 9 years old because one of my friends was deaf, but then I switched schools and I lost most of my vocabulary. Over the past few months, I have been studying on my own and have made decent progress, but I would love to video chat with people in ASL to improve my proficiency.  I'm excited to be joining this community. If anyone would like to video chat in ASL, I would be more than happy.
