    I have started to use dcmp.org and I like it. They have many topics to choose from.

    This site: ASL Technical has many signs for advanced math, biology, physics, and technology that I do not see in the other online dictionaries.

    I have been using two sites, one that is mentioned above with Bill Vicars (Lifeprint.com) and also WestwoodASL, taught with videos by a Deaf high school ASL teacher. Both sites have been very helpful so far. Westwoodasl.com has no vocabulary lists, he focuses more on grammar/syntax, and not so much on just learning a bunch of signs. Lifeprint is a little of both. I like having the vocabulary, but definitely see the importance of learning the actual language, just knowing the signs is not going to be very helpful in actual communication. I also find that I must have the videos. Books and pictures are not very helpful to me.

    Westwood costs $5 per module, each module containing several videos, lessons, and maybe a quiz in each too....not sure as I have only done the first 2 modules. I searched and asked around, and both of these sites came highly recommended, both from Deaf and hearing people I asked.

    That site is run by my current ASL 2 teacher: Dr. Bill Vicars. The videos are very, very good for practicing at home.

    Cheers for the links. I use BSL and SSE but I'm very interested to learn international ones too. Would be very handy for the future. :)

    Thank you for the links, Kristina!
    My ASL instructor uses Lifeprint and I am impressed with the ASLU site. I see that Dr Bill offers a DVD. Has anyone used the DVD? What do you think of it as a supplement to an in-person class?

    Thanks for this! Wow is it hard but I am going to give this a go and hope to learn. Then hopefully my family will to.

    How is the best way to start? Would it be learning each letter of the alphabet or ? Sorry if this seems like a rude question. I have lost a great deal of my hearing abilities and even more within the last 8 months.Trying to figure out what to do and where to start in all of this.

    Never mind after reading around more I feel it's best to take classes so I can learn properly.
