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.

    • This is excellent news. i'm on pacific time because I'm on the west coast. I'd be willing to get together sometime between morning and noon here. I'll check this site in the morning. I hope you are actively checking this site.
    • Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
