Hi, I've been learning sign from Bill Vicars' YT videos almost exclusively for nearly five months, and highly suggest reviewing vocabulary through the Handspeak site to review the expressive facial "morphemes" for each word, as they are very clearly defined there.  Also the Handspeak site's "Reverse ASL Dictionary" is very useful when remembering the sign but forgetting the word, which comes in handy for people like me with a tiny little bit of non-verbal aphasia.  Also something that's amazingly helpful is Bill Vicars' Fingerspelling Tool, as well as the Fingerspelling Game on this site~~

Thanks Amber for the YouTube link.  It would be great if someone would create a new version of this, however I did watch the first video and found it to be very helpful. I have followed Bill Vicars YouTube videos and have taken a couple of in person sign language classes.  I still struggle with receptive finger spelling and signing in conversation.  I pick up a sign or two in conversation, but the trick is putting it all together. Thanks again.

    • Hi I am taking ASL through our local community college on zoom. The teacher suggested we practice receptive ASL. Seems most in our class can sign but can't read it. I am playing the game and see there are amazing scores. They must have it on max speed and no mistakes? He told us to try to figure out the word instead of individual letters. I'm finding that really hard. What is your average score? When I increase the speed I freeze. I seem to get stuck on f and x.  Grateful for this website t
    • Hi Ryan, I also started to learn ASL to expland my knowlege and be able to communicate with more people. I'm a 21 year old female college student currently enrolled in a two year ASL training program, I have yet to be certified and am coming to the end of my semester soon, we should video chat, you could show me some of your BSL.  -Best, Jela
    • Hello Ryan, my name is Carleigh, and I am currently in my second ASL class at a community college. I would love to learn about some of BSL and how learning that has been for you. I am an 18-year-old female in my final semester in high school. I started taking sign this year and am hoping to either minor in it or major in it in college.  
    • Hiya everyone! I've decided to learn ASL in order to expand the access I have to the worldwide Deaf/hard-of-hearing community. I'm a 21-year-old male living in the UK and have studied BSL for the last three years while also using it in the care sector supporting deaf/blind clients. I am very aware of how the two deaf cultures differ across the Atlantic and want to form first-hand connections with anyone fluent in/learning ASL to broaden my knowledge on any topic relating the signing community in
