Hello everyone,

This is my first time ever posting on a forum (I've never done reddit or anything else), so I hope you all will be patient with me. I'm studying to be an ASL-English Interpreter, I am about to go into Sign 4 at my college, but I believe it is way easier to pick up the language when communicating with native ASL speakers (signers?), but the pandemic has canceled my plans to go to Deaf chats or volunteering at Deaf organizations in my area so I just don't have that opportunity which is why I decided to come here.

When not signing in person I enjoy watching videos, reviewing previous ASL material from school, and reading ASL related books, but I notice that there is still not a lot of good material that goes in-depth into the grammar. For example, I was recently reviewing how to describe the layout of a house, and my school material only offered one video, without any text explanation, as an example and focused more on the layout of a room. The way I like to learn is by having numerous examples and having explanations why things are signed a certain way.

That is all I wanted to say for now, I hope you all can help me out!

Thank you!

    • Hi! My name is Camille. I have a college assignment that requires me to interview anyone who wears cochlear implants, who are hard of hearing or is deaf. I'm hoping we can meet up or maybe set up a virtual meet, like facetime or maybe zoom? I know you're probably wondering why should you help such a random person like me? I don't know why but..I can assure you it's for a good cause. It's for educational purposes. Your time will be much appreciated. If you're interested, please email me
    • Hi Andie! I'm a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. I'm also in school right now taking communications disorders and deaf education. I'm hoping to become an SLP someday. I have an assignment that requires me to meet people who are deaf, hard of hearing or are wearing cochlear implants. Would it be possible for me to interview Josh? I'm also learning ASL, I know some words but I rely heavily on fingerspelling. Please e-mail me if you're available.  My e-mail is [email protected]
    • Hello, I'm Kiara (hearing), currently a student in ASL- English Interpreting program. I'm enrolled in ASL 4. If you are in the EST time zone and looking for a partner, let me know.  
    • Good Afternoon on this very cold, very snowy day in Southwestern Ontario! My name is Lisa & I'm a Day Program Coordinator for Adults with Exceptionalities. I support  a young man named Josh who is aaaaaamzing & I want to help him make meaningful connections with other people who have a hearing impairment. His ASL is quite good, but more than anything, I'd simply like him to socialize! He is very sweet, sensitive & likes to create his own signs sometimes vs  learning the proper ones!
