Hello! I'm hearing and learning asl, I'm still in the beginning stages. I'm 15 and hoping to make friends as well that I can sign with. Feel free to message me if you'd like to talk!

Welcome! How old are you? Are you still in school? It's AWESOME that you're HOH and learning ASL! If you're still in high school, and want to go further, there's a TON of amazing resources out there! You could attend your state's School for the Deaf, or MSSD (the School for the Deaf in Washington DC) Some states have regional dhh programs where you could learn ASL as a second language. It's actually not that unusal for new to ASL teens to come to schools or programs for the Deaf, not knowing any ASL! There are also summer camps where you could learn by immersian! There's a lot of stuff out there...Where are you? Maybe we can point you towards some good local resources, and before you know it, you'd be fluent in NO TIME at ALL!

AWESOME!!! What state are you in? Here is a listing of Deaf Schools and programs! https://www.gallaudet.edu/clerc-cen...ces-and-directories/schools-and-programs.html Contact your state's School for the Deaf, and ask them if there are any dhh programs near you. You could also look into MSSD, which is the national School for the Deaf on the campus of Gallaudet University. The quality of Deaf schools varies a lot but there are some very good quality ones. Also a lot do have the potential to turn out some well educated students. I definitly think that if your school doesn't offer a lot, that a Deaf School or a dhh program could really help you! Also for this coming summer, check out Deaf Camps!!! There's all kinds of Deaf camps, from state school based, to sports to Christian, to traditional ones..... As someone who is HOH, DEFINTLY look into those schools, programs and camps. I've seen so many HOH kids be all nervous about "Oh I won't fit in, "Oh I'm too "hearing" ... They then take the plunge with Deaf camp or deaf school/program, and it adds SO MUCH to their experience, so they are thriving rather then doggy paddling!

Hey! I'm new to sign. I've been watching Bill Vicars classes on youtube, and I have learned quite a bit. I don't have anyone I can practice with. I'm on his ASL 2 list of videos, episode 17 to be exact. I would love a signing buddy, so I am totally willing to help you learn, which will also help me learn!

Hi! I don’t really know if I’m considered deaf or hard of hearing cause I’m completely deaf in my right ear but somewhat hearing in my left. I’m 16 and I would love to be friends with you! If you want to be friends my name is Ari and you can find on Instagram at izzy_moseley
