Hi everybody, my name is Damien, I am French and started to learn ASL alone with Professor Bill Vicars' video. (Is this French guy lost?) Well nope, I hope to learn more about Deaf/ Hard-Of-Hearing Culture even though I am hearing. I can't only learn by heart, I am eager to live/use this language :D. Keep in mind [is this the right word??] the time gap between France and where you live, but I hope it won't stop us from learning together... Have a nice day and maybe see you soon !!! :D

Hi Lysandor ! You are right, I am actually studying English and ASL in order to move to US or Canada, both seems awesome to me. I learned LSF during a job experience once for a client. I wanted to learn more but everything courses was out of price for a 14 years old's wallet. I grew up and discover that sign language was not only "French oriented", that every country had its own signs. Learning ASL is both fun and interesting. I'd love to go to ASL event once I go there.

It really depends.  Most online programs and community college classes I've seen seem to go up to level 4.  There are programs for interpreters that get Bachelors degrees that go up to ASL 5 or so and then there are specialization classes specific to interpreting.  But I think it really depends on the individual program.  It seems that for basic community knowledge that 4 is the base knowledge and the rest you pick up through interacting with Deaf people.

    • I can't believe I just found this awesome website .... love everything I see on it!
    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
