    Agree with above comment. The site owner (or whatever they are called) is particularly nice. I had a few glitches in the beginning and she was right there, immediately , to support me in working it out. I will also say that it is uniquely balanced - deaf, hearing signers, time devoted to vocabulary but equally important, time devoted to ASL grammar. It probably can't be said enough that it's smart to begin with learning grammar the correct way otherwise people continue on with developmental errors - meaning they take early errors and keep compounding them. The ASL grammar book is an enjoyable read and I consider it a must.
  3. It's something like "what to do" or "what is she doing" or "what's going on" but does not mean, "what's happening?" I can't see the gentleman's face but if he is squinting his eyes then it's like a wh kind of question. The motion you are referring to is uniquely ASL and not an exact translation of English words. That's my two cents on the question.
