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 my name is Andrew Kosinski and I work at Sunbelt Staffing. I am working with a school near Peabody, MA and they need a ASL teacher for the upcoming school year  I wanted to reach out and see if there are any ASL teachers or anybody that knows any ASL teachers looking for work in this forum.  I am going to attach a link to my job post if you would like to apply or feel free to respond to me here!   https://www.sunbeltstaffing.com/jobs/in-need-of-asl-teacher-in-peabody-ma-area/hc/5264
    • Hi Yael! I am also looking for an ASL practice partner. I am new to ASL, so I may not be too much help with grammar or vocabulary. I have been following the online courses from Dr. Bill Vicars on Lifeprint.com and know it would be super helpful to begin signing with someone "in person" to get used to seeing and understanding more than the scripted prompts from the course.  I am in NY so there is a time difference, but if you're interested we can try to set a time to sign together
    • That's great to hear about the website you mentioned, spreadthesign.com! It's fantastic to have a resource that allows people to learn different sign languages, including ASL and BSL. The inclusion of 3D signs adds another dimension to the learning experience. It's important to recognize that having a resource allowing people to learn different sign languages, including ASL and BSL, is fantastic each sign language may have its own unique grammar and sentence structure, as you mentioned with Port
