Hello! My name is Mandi. I am new at ASL and also at the website. I am. just looking for other ASL students or Deaf ppl to sign with me so that i can learn ASL and use the skills in the real world and not just in class. Not here for anything else so please be respectful as i will do the same. ☺

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.
