You won't have to spend hours surfing the 'net to find how to sign basic ASL phrases. We will teach you how to construct simple sentences and questions. For example, if you just signed BATHROOM, it could mean that someone went to the bathroom, you are looking for the bathroom, or you are meeting someone by the bathroom. Learn how to communicate exactly what you intend.
In this course, you get the chance to interact in real time with native signers. The #1 key to learning a new language is to immerse yourself naturally. Luckily, you don't need to travel abroad to get this kind of experience. Instead, you will have two Deaf instructors on demand!
This course helps you communicate with confidence in sign language. After all, isn't that why you want to learn ASL? If you learn alone, how will you develop the courage to talk with a live Deaf person? Let us teach you strategies on how to navigate potential communication roadblocks.

Meghan is the little sister of the Rainone duo. Thanks to her sister, she fell into teaching ASL and spent the next 20 years refining her teaching skills.
