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.

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 all! Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :') As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past. I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie! Please to mee you. Jo.
