Continued from above

You may be surprised to learn that American Sign Language has its own structure, rather than being a word-for-word translation of spoken English. For example, the phrase "The father loves his child" would typically use just the signs for "father", "love", and "child". And, just like any other language, ASL can have an "accent" based on the region or culture of the signer, with variations of hand position and facial expression.

In the past, aspiring students of American Sign Language would have to find a Deaf community willing to teach them to sign, take a class at a local community college (if offered), or struggle with books and antiquated DVD lessons in order to learn ASL. However, today’s modern tools make it easy to learn fluent American Sign Language at home or even on-the-go, with online courses and up-to-date video lessons.

Are you ready to find the right American Sign Language lessons for you? As you consider the ASL programs on the market, keep the following criteria in mind:

  • Instructional Methods. Do the American Sign Language lessons use a teaching approach that fits your personal learning style?
  • Skill Level. Are the ASL lessons appropriate for novice language learners, or do they expect you to already have some experience with the language? Can you progress from one level to another for the same original purchase price or subscription, or will you have to invest more money later?
  • Value. Do the American Sign Language lessons have a track record of student success, making it worth the money you will spend? has reviewed and ranked the best Sign Language lessons available today. We hope these reviews help you open new doors of communication as you learn to sign fluently in ASL right away!
