Hi there! I am having trouble finding an online program that doesn’t require you to have an associates coming in. I found a school that said you need an associates or be able to pass a proficiency test.

The admissions counselor said “Some candidates will work with a registered interpreter on their own, like tutoring sessions, and attend Deaf community events and even use online resources in increase their skill base. They then will sit for the ASLPI. An ASLPI score of 2 or higher will verify your language proficiency and will allow admission.”

Has anyone on this forum done something like this? If so, I’d love any pointers you could give. I have completed ASL I-III as well as a few intro to interpreting classes but it was a few years ago and I’m happy to start from the beginning for a refresher. Thank you!

    • 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?
