I am mostly here for the same reasons.  I am learning through a few classes online, and I'm taking a class this fall at my local community college.  So I need people to practice with.  I belong to a Glide group that is for practicing.  There are few people on there who are learning to become interpreters and there are a few deaf people there as well.  Though they don't tend to contribute as much.  One guy who seems to help them most is a CODA.  Let me know if you want to join the group, I can add you.

Thank you for replying to my message. Yes, please. I would like to try the Glide chat. Please let me know how to get started... Is it an app I have to download?

Yeah.  It's an app for your smartphone.  You have to have a decent camera.  The app should be in whatever phone you uses app download program.  It's called Glide.  Just download it and it will set up a username or have you create one.  Androids seem to force a ridiculous username on you.  Download the app and you can find a couple different groups to chat with.  Facebook has a few groups for beginner ASL users who want to sign with each other.  I'm part of a practice group, though we're closing in on our 50 member max.

You can add me on Glide and I'll try to add you when we get space.  @GAEHIWB

Just make sure that when you add me or you message me that you put that you are from this forum.  I get random messages from spam on there sometimes.  It helps me differentiate real people from fake.

Hello! I am India. I am learning ASL because I am a ER nurse and I think it would be helpful to be able to communicate better with my patients who are deaf or hard of hearing. I would love to have someone to practice with!

    • Hi all, I tried to learn a ASL years ago, but didn't get very far, as learning resources were harder to come by. I have always wanted to pursue it again. Recently, after seeing a few videos and movies that renewed my excitement, I enrolled in an online course. However, the most effective way to learn a language is to put it to use. So here I am. I hope to be able to practice with like-minded individuals. 
    • Hello! My name is Heather and I am interested in ASl because of my Deaf/hard of hearing family. My husband and two of our four children are D/HH. My husband has a moderate to severe hearing loss, our oldest son, 24-years-old has a mild to moderate hearing loss and our youngest son, 9-years-old has a moderate to severe hearing loss and speech issues. Their hearing loss is a congenital progressive sensorineural hearing loss. My husband and oldest son have lost more of their residual hearing fairly slowly over time but our youngest has lost his at a faster rate and he relies on sign to communicate because of his hearing loss and speech. He has an educational interpreter in school who is amazing! He has picked up on sign quickly but we have struggled to learn. With our youngest identifying with the amazing Deaf community, the fact that he is losing his residual hearing quickly and his hearing aids are not effective, and the need to communicate with him in sign daily I feel anxious to learn and become fluent. I have loved the Deaf community members that we have met and really want to be able to communicate with others. I look forward to learning and communicating on here!
