Hello & Happy Cinco de Mayo!


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I just recently joined this forum thinking it might be a great way to get better at ASL. I took a few basic ASL courses years ago in college, but never followed through with interpreting aspirations (cause of, ya know, life). After years of thinking about the missed opportunity, I put my foot down and now trying to go back to school for interpreting. I am still a beginner, but love learning and experiencing both the language and Deaf culture.

I hope to get to signing with you all at some point. Until then, keep on keepin' on and stay safe out there 🤘

I am sitting in a chat room while doing the fingerspelling game..  hoping someone will drop in and join me to practice some signing.  Also just learning how these posts work.  Its not all clear to me yet.  Testing to see if this will show up in the right display panel under "posts".

If you're looking for a practice partner, I'm always interested. 🙂 I am hearing, just fyi.

Hi there Alex. Absolutely, getting to actually practice conversational sign rather than just by Youtube would be great. I'd love to see if we can setup a video chat sometime. and same for you, Lauren and Aspenlea.

I don't have a Zoom just yet, but got an old Skype account if those platforms are better than the video chat on the site.

Let me know your guys' thoughts, and nice to meet you!

    • Hi!  I live in Jasper, Alabama and I am a preacher wanting to work in deaf ministry.  I myself am hard of hearing and am progressively going deaf.  I grew up with neighbors who were deaf and taught me to sign a little, then my cousin moved back home from Talladega School for the deaf and she helped me, but I left it for a long time.  I have been studying for a year now and I desperately need someone to video chat with so that I can go further.  I look forward to talking to you all, thank you.
    • I've been learning on my own for a few months as work permits....stopped for awhile, and back at it now with determination to complete ASL3 this year...I'm currently finishing Unit 2 of ASL 1. :)  Mostly using ASLTC and supporting with handpseak and signingsavvy. Following HandsUpSD, ASLStore, and DeafiningASL on Insta. Super lucky to have met an Auslan interpreter online who is now learning ASL (and already streets ahead of me!), so I get some practice and tips from her. Have a great day everyone! 
    • Alternatively, it seems as if we could send videos back and forth on this platform. i've done that before with an app called Marco Polo as well. You can find me on there @kylbrdfrd 
    • Sure, what is the time difference for us? I am available at multiple points during the day, so I feel we could work it out. I'm not sure about guidelines for this site but if it allows you, you can email me at [email protected] Thanks!
