My Intro

Recommended Posts

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!

    • I recently got my degree in elementary education and I used a few signs to try and help with order in the classroom. The kids loved it and they were finding out new one they could use. I am glad to have found this forum for a chance to practice. I hope you are healthy and happy!
    • Hello everyone, we are a postgraduate team from Trinity College Dublin attempting to gauge interest in a sign language learning application idea. The app would be similar to Duolingo but built around automatic sign recognition technology, where a user could sign for the app and receive feedback on their gestures legibility. Currently we’re still trying to figure out if an app like this would be of interest to sign language learners or if we’ve completely misjudged the potential audience.
