I have started to use dcmp.org and I like it. They have many topics to choose from.
I am good study lots of video asl and youtube help you improve. I can upload more sign language. I figure out think I willl make sure good idea. I am lots of hard work activities tired and lots of hard work and volunteer!!!!!!! ASL ROCK
This site: ASL Technical has many signs for advanced math, biology, physics, and technology that I do not see in the other online dictionaries.
Thank you for this info - I was not aware of it and will look forward to it soon.
here's what I did: set Sign of the Day | ASL Sign Language Video Dictionary as my homepage. That way, everytime I open my browser, I learn a new sign.
Some signs are SEE and some are ASL. It will let you know if it is ASL.
Great idea, Deafgal!
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.
Wow by Dr. Bill himself. I checked the site out and found out the university is online with 2 year courses for ASL 1 and 2. still reading...
This thread is useful, by the way!
Bumping this thread since we have a lot of new users who are looking to learn ASL, BSL and whatever else.
I will let know kristinba I tell you on link I search more google!
This as well as some other threads should be a sticky. Anyway.
This one is a sticky. It's one of 3 sticky's in this area.
Oh ok. Didnt see that. I opened the link straight from my email and here I was. Lol
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.
KristinaB thank you for this post! It is very helpful.
Thanks for the Information!!
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.
Signing Online - Learn American Sign Language this the link to on-line ASL classed they are pretty responsibly priced I think it is $50 a class
