Course content

What's vibrant, visually stunning, engaging and used by around 2.5 million people? American Sign Language. ASL is the third most-used language in the United States, after English and Spanish. American Sign Language is a visual language, a language of movement. Following videos is the easiest way to learn to sign correctly. So we updated our ASL course to include 66+ videos for you to watch the signs and practice them as many times as you like. You can study this fresh, modern and easy-to-learn ASL online, in your own time, from anywhere you like. Powerful reasons to learn sign language include:

Being able to interact with the 500,000 people who use ASL every day and the 2 million who have ASL as a second language

Communicating better with the Deaf community - your customers, colleagues, family and friends

Communicating with babies who can learn to sign single words and gestures by eight months. They can express themselves before they can talk
