    Here is a thread for the ASL students who want to practice so they can contact each other and find who wants to practice with them.

    You can get something like Skype and practice over the internet.

    Sorry I am new at this! I am going deaf and trying to learn ASL. I have a webcam. Is there a delay in time with a webcam?

    I have both Skype and ooVoo.

    I would be more than happy to set up a weekly ASL chat for those who want to practise with an ASL fluent signer.

    I'd definitely be interested. But it would depend on the day/time, since my work schedule is a bity crazy. I'll keep watch on this thread and see what develops. :ty: for offering to set this up!

    Sign me up too! If anyone wants to practice with me feel free to contact me. I guess you can call me a beginner because I know the basics, but I'm a fast learner and I'll be glad to help beginners! Just give me a shout.

    I'd love to participate if I can! I might be late getting in there though since I don't get home from church till at least 1pm. How long does everyone stick around for? Maybe I can pop in for a short bit before work.... we'll see if I can work it out. :)
