Someone to practice with

I am looking for someone in the Northwest Florida/Crestview area who would be interested in practicing ASL.

This thread has not been open for a month or so. I am an interpreter student, and my husband and I are looking to move to the west coast of Florida. It seems like Tampa is the place to be? We just don't want it to be "retirement" community central... KWIM :lol: I ma still in beginning ASL, but I have fallen in love with the deaf community here in Cincinnati, and I would like to have a large, strong deaf community to move into.
Then tampa or st Petersburg is the place to be

I'm from Florida, too .. welcome! I moved to Florida several years ago. I'm still bit "new" here, too.

From what I was told that Tampa Bay area (Tampa, STP, and Clearwater) may be the largest deaf community in the state of Florida. I still believe so.

VP Directory should show you that there is a large deaf community in FL. Though not all registered on vp directory but in general speaking. FL is ranked 3rd in that vp directory for all states.
Where in fl you from tampa bay here

I agree with this poster. :) I am from Florida too....and I knew that Tampa has a large population of deaf people there. There are many deaf people all over FL, not just in Tampa, STP, and in Clearwater. :) Even in St. Augustine where there is a school for the deaf. :)
St Petersburg #1 I live in tampa

I know it is 2019 but i am wondering the update on Deaf Community in Florida. Is St petersburg Florida still have large Deaf Community? All ages? Perhap age group around 35-40? Tampa Bay? I am considering to move but want to explore the options.

Let me know!
