Find an American Sign Language Practice Partner!

Are you learning American Sign Language on your own? Finding a partner with whom to practice your signing skills is an integral part of learning this language. And since ASL is a visual language, face-to-face practice time is crucial to your success. As they say, practice makes perfect!

If you are interested in learning ASL along with a community of other students, you may be interested in joining the Start ASL Complete Online Course. Our course is the most advanced and fun step-by-step online ASL learning available and we guarantee you’ll love it!

So, if you are learning ASL and looking for a partner with whom to practice, leave a comment below! Be sure to include your location in case in-person practice is possible.

        Hey Alex, my name is Tor. My email is if you wanna shoot me an email. I would love to maybe work on Snapchat together to practice? I think working with someone who’s deaf could really help my understand of the Deaf community. I have basic conversational skills and some random vocab words locked in my brain right now. Shoot me an email :)

I’m looking for someone who can be patient with me and wants to review basic signing, sentence structure, vocab, and just chit chat. Even though I’m currently in intermediate classes my signing skills themselves are a couple years behind because I haven’t been able to use them as much as I hoped I would over the years. But, this time I want it to stick! Find me on facebook (khouribee) or instagram (khouriouri) if you’d like to get started! I’m willing to work with whatever schedule we can come up with for skyping/facetime.

    Hi I’m Jules, i’m learning ASL for the first time but I’ve always been interested in learning. I live NC and have 3 kids. Unfortunately because i have 3 kids Skype and face time aren’t really doable (unless u wanna see a bunch of wild banshee children running around). but i have used Marco polo before and similar apps to send videos back and forth to practice face to face interactions without being in live time (so when the kids aren’t looking). Would anyone be interested in helping me out :)

    Hello!! Anyone willing to partner with me for some much needed practice? Lost my deaf brother several years ago to a horrible illness and quit signing.

    Sarah says:

    Hello! I’m looking for an ASL study partner that I can practice signing with. I’m on ASL 1 Unit 5. I’m not on a certain schedule for learning, I just learn whenever I can. I do know other ASL other than what’s taught on this site. I’m trying to get connected with silent dinners in my area soon. I would prefer a female somewhere between 13-maybe 18ish, (cuz I’m a teenager lol) but I’m flexible. I can do Discord, Google Duo, Snapchat’s video, FaceTime, whatever it is, I can probably make it work.

    bethebrush says:

    I’m also located in the Tampa Bay area, Florida. I’m in Lakeland, but I’m willing to travel to Bartow, Plant City, and even Tampa or St. Pete. Though a halfway point would be ideal in that situation.

  75. raesmith2345
    raesmith2345 says:

    If anyone wants to practice with me my skype username is Rae<3. My work schedule is a little random so we need to schedule specific times to talk. I'm getting ready to do my first deaf event in less than a week. I have learned a little extra ASL from other sources over the past few years so my knowledge is a little outside of just this site. I will take as many signing partners as I can get! :)

    springawakening says:

    Hi! My name is Fern and I am looking for an ASL study partner! All I ask is that you’re flexible with times and keep up with communication! I am on ASL1 and I’m on unit 7! I can do Skype, but I’m willing to do other video communication services if it’s what you’d like! I prefer a female partner but I’m fine if you’re a male so long as you’re under 20 for my own comfort (I’m a teenager haha). I’m also located in Tucson, AZ so if you’re also from there we could arrange an in-person practice as well! my email is !

    Ashcat212 says:

    Hello! I have been learning sign language, and I have recently decided to do a project where I would sign with a song, so I’m looking for someone who’s knows theirs signs at least a little better than me to help out. (The theme is bullying btw) Skype or Discord would work best, and I have an extracurriclar that takes up a lot of my time, so the timing may be odd.

  84. Joseph
    Joseph says:

    I am in Dallas, TX. I am hearing. I would like to find a conversation partner. I’ve only been taking lessons online for a few weeks, and there are not very many meetups in this area so it would be good to meet someone who can help me learn face-to-face until I can afford more rigorous lessons.

    I am newly learning ASL and I am looking for people that are willing to practice with via web cam or in person. I’m hoping to find a group of people as I feel that it will help my progress in learning.

    Hi I’m getting back in ASL signing, I learned how to sign when I was a pre-teen, but other than teaching my children babysigns I haven’t signed in a while. Id love to gt more practice in with anyone who can sing over skype.

    Hello, I’m Marie, research scholar currently living in Manhattan, I’m in the process of learning sign language, so I’m looking for a signing partner. Skype is fine but practicing in person would be very cool also :)
