    • Thank you!!  I will definitely check this out!
    • Hi. I am also new to this site as well. I am from Michigan. ASL recently spark my interest in wanting to learn more. Learning from downloadable apps help me out a bit. However, I feel like that isn't quite enough to further my learning. I'm planning on going back to school to major in ASL. For a newbie in wanting to learn ASL, what are some suggestions, advice, and ideas I should follow up on. 
    • It may work, Emily! What time (Pacific) are you available to practice? My husband works 2nd shift for the time being, so I'm available until about 7pm Pacific time!
    • Hello there, fellow ASL enthusiasts! I am currently taking ASL 1 in college, and would love a study buddy. There aren't many close by deaf communities, and am looking to apply the knowledge I learn. Would anyone be interested? I am on the Pacific Time Zone if that helps.
