Savvy Chat

Signing Savvy is now offering the ability to connect with ASL Experts to practice your receptive and expressive ASL skills or get tutoring on a specific aspect of ASL.

All chats are one-on-one, 30 minutes sessions, conducted online via video conferencing software. Chats with any of our deaf ASL experts will be voice off. However, there is a text message feature within the video conferencing software if needed. Chats with hearing ASL experts have the option of including voice on.

To get started, you will need a webcam, high speed internet, and a device that will allow you to download/install the Zoom video conferencing software (you can use a Windows or Mac OS X computer, iPhone, or Android device).
