American Sign Language

My nephew and a good friend of mine are learning. It prompted me to learn. It’s a valuable asset.

Links

  1. Dr. Bill Vicars – Another great YouTube channel for learning ASL. The format isn’t as organized, but you still get what you need. His website LifePrint goes into more detail.
  2. Handspeak – is another excellent ASL Video Dictionary. Start with the ASL 101 Tutorial, which a self-paced lesson plan for beginners.
  3. Signing Savvy – is an ASL Video Dictionary.  You can even build flashcards and share it with others. How cool is that?!
  4. Signed with Heart – This is a short video course on YouTube. I’m not sure if it’s still being updated, but the videos are still relevant and useful.

Apps

  1. ASL American Sign Language – free with in-app purchases. This one is slightly better only because it’s cheaper. For $2.99, you get the Pro version which gets rid of ads and unlocks all of the signs. This app has memory games too. While it isn’t as polished as The ASL App, it’s still pretty good for $2.99.  Available for iOS and Android.
  2. The ASL App  – free with in-app purchases.  To be honest, it’s decent as a free version, but the packs are really what are going to get you. I paid to unlock all the packs for $9.99. I love that it includes phrases for social media, pop culture references and other phrases that you usually don’t find in ASL apps. You have the option of slowing down the videos, saving favorites, and searching for phrases within the app, One of the downsides: no dictionary. Available for iOS and Android.
