How to Learn Sign language
One question we get asked a lot is how to learn American Sign Language, or what is the best way to learn ASL.
ASL Mobile Apps
Of course we suggest using our ASL Dictionary app but there are plenty of free online resources as well.
Take a class, ask your local university if they offer any ASL classes. Taking a class has the benefit of a structured learning process taught by professional Sign Language Instructors who are ofter professional interpreters.
Learn from people who are Deaf
Make some friends. This is the best way to learn and use Sign Language. Since ASL is regional you will learn the signs that are most commonly used in the area of the country you live in.
Yes there are books on ASL but we don't recommend them anymore since this is an outdated way to learn Sign Language. An ASL Picture Dictionary is hard to determine the movement of the sign and proper facial expression.
We would like to expand this list. If you have a suggestion please email us through our contact us page. Thanks.
