Smile hearing but willing to learn asl!

Hi! I recently discovered asl, and have been really interested in it since. I tried learning by myself but found it confusing. Would anybody be willing to help me learn through oovoo or Skype?

Wahoo!!! Just make sure you dedicate a significant time to interacting with local deaf folks. The best way to learn and get good at it is to really put yourself out there and interact with other ASL users.

Thank ya! ^_^ Sorry It's been a while since I've been on the forums. Life's been NUTS! My ASL and deaf culture professors are Deaf, so that's a HUGE! bonus I worry about going to deaf events though. I get so many mixed signals about hearing people and interpreters. I gotta say it's intimidating to say the least lol, but I really do genuinely love the culture and the language. Even if I don't end up interpreting, I'd still love to be active in the community, once I get up the courage to actually sign.

Talk a class mate into going to a deaf gathering. It will give you more courage to put yourself out there.
