  • What is American Sign Language?

    Sign Language

    Sign Language is a visual means of communicating using gestures, facial expression, and body language. Sign Language is used mainly by people who are Deaf or have hearing impairments.

    American Sign Language (ASL)

    Within the US the most common form of Sign Language is called American Sign Language (or ASL). ASL has it’s own grammatical structure and syntax, as a language it is not dependant nor is it strongly related to any spoken language.

    • Hi. I am Cecily. My sign name  is C initial writer ( like writer). I  have being learning ASL for um, four years. I have taken ASL 1, 2, 3 and fingerspelling. I don't have a class now. I  want to  practice signing with different people. That's why I signed up here.
    • Hi Veronica.  Welcome.  What resources are you using to learn right now?  There are a ton available.  I would imagine that LV has a decent amount of classes you could attend.
    • Hello, Community! I'm excited to be on board in this space and looking forward to what I hope will be lots of growing and learning to enhance my ability to communicate with Deaf community. I'm a 39yo, Queer, Latinx based mostly out of Las Vegas but travel all across the country a lot for work. I recently met someone that I very much want to develop a relationship with and is Deaf. I will have a chance to be with her again at the end of August and am hopeful to be able to carry on at least a 30 minute, enjoyable (to her) visit with her and without an interpreter by then. Thank yall very much for this practice space. In Solidarity, -Veronica
    • I am also new to ASL and would love to make friends to help practice and be more involved in the deaf community. Feel free to add me on fb,
