Hello,

I'm a new ASL learner.  I started in April of this year.  I'm learning online.  I started because I believe this is a beautiful language and I'm helping support my daughter because she is attending College and her major is Special Education for Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  My daughter is hard of hearing and she is so passionate about the deaf culture and it has inspired me to help in some way by learning not only ASL, but the deaf culture community.  Due to COVID it's hard to attend deaf events, so when I came across this site I felt this would be a good fit to gain additional information and practice my skills.

Hi, I wouldn't say im new to ASL but taking it more seriously now since I have time due to COVID. I learned ASL a little over 13 years ago but I haven't used it and since I am now older I have the patience to learn more and appreciate everything being taught. Im a terrible finger speller and its hard for me to read them when signed. I want to get more practice if anyone wants to video chat sometime.

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
    • I am new at learning ASL so I could use the practice 
    • Thanks Lysandor your reply it's very helpful! 
    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
