American Sign Language

Any good resources to help me learn ASL? I would love to be able to learn to sign fluently, but I can't afford to take a class.

  • I am self taught! Let me find some info and I will get back to you! But I did have to pay for on-line classes. I am still needing to go back to school and get better classes. Signing is hard when you are trying to teach yourself.....AND IF you have no one to practice with....you forget so much.

    It will probably be later this afternoon, but I will do my best to get you some links!

  • Check on the internet. I know there is a website where they will actually show you how to sign. You should start off with learning the alphabet in sign language which will help you to finger spell any actual words. If you need any help you can message me.
