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!

    • im learning to interpret a song by watching a video of a girl interpreting it. The girl used the sign in the video below, but I had previously been using the double x handshape and then the sign for in, which one is correct?  
    • So ive been learning asl through videos of songs interpreted because thats been the best way for me to remeber signs, but i recently saw a sign that i couldnt figure out what it meant. can yall please help? The timing the sign was done makes it seem like she was doing this sign for the word 'that' but it is not the sign I know for 'that'.
