Would like a Deaf/H.O.H buddy :)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

     I was told the best way to learn ASL is to just chat with someone who has practiced ASL most/all their life. If anyone is willing to help me practice and correct my vocab/sentences, I would really appreciate it.

I have been learning ASL off and on for a few years, and know basic vocabulary. (So still a beginner) I took an ASL course over the summer with Texas School for the Deaf here in Austin, Tx. It was a virtual course due to COVID, so I was able to rewind videos, but was not able to ask any questions/advice/clarifications. 

Let me know if you'd like to chat. I am in central time BTW. :)

    • Hi, sorry if the title didn't make any sense. I'm not Deaf or HoH, but people in my life are HoH. I was wondering if it would be considered disrespectful to Deaf culture to introduce myself with a word instead of fingerspelleing. I know name signs are very important to Deaf culture, and I don't want to overstep if it's considered rude. Example, my name is Kat. Would it be rude to introduce myself with the sign for cat?
    • Heyy! This is Rylee. I like to make new friends idc hearing or deaf important know sign language so I can meet and video chat also make friends too. 
    • I am a product of Detroit Public Schools. When I graduated, each person was supposed to do at least one year of a 'foreign language'. Not sure of a better term to be inclusive of ASL, but wouldn't it be grand if a year of ASL was offered?  In High School, at least, all the kids could have a chance to learn the Alphabet, Colors, Numbers and some simple greetings.  I have niblings (nieces and nephews) and I am sure to teach them all the IMPORTANT stuff: cookie, ice cream, bathroom, mother,
    • I am looking for deaf ASL friends in Philly, who can help me learn Sign Language better!
