Teaching ASL

Hi everyone!  I am in ASL level 3, and recently finished teaching a series of ten ASL classes at my local library.  I did this in order to make the resources to learn available to my community, since there are so few actual classes that exist.  I taught a variety of different signs, from emergency signs, to verbs, to food signs.  It was a very rewarding experience, and I highly recommend anyone who is considering entering a career in ASL to try it out.  Even just teaching the alphabet and basic conversation signs could make a huge difference.  I am posting my powerpoints, and packets (which include pictures of all of the signs, crossword puzzles, and sentence practice for participants to take home) here, in the hopes that someone can use them to continue teaching themselves, or to teach their community some ASL.  Enjoy!

    • 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
