ASLU American Sign Language University (Free)
ASL is a visual gestural language. That means it is a language that is expressed through the hands and face and is perceived through the eyes. It isn’t just waving your hands in the air. If you furrow your eyebrows, tilt your head, glance in a certain direction, lean your body a certain way, puff your cheek, or any number of other “inflections” –you are adding or changing meaning in ASL. A “visual gestural” language carries just as much information as any spoken language. There is much more to learning American Sign Language than just memorizing signs. ASL has its own grammar, culture, history, terminology and other unique characteristics. It takes time and effort to become a “skilled signer.” But you have to start somewhere if you are going to get anywhere–so dive in and enjoy.
Lessons adapt to your learning style. Exercises are tailored to help you learn and review vocabulary effectively. Duolingo works. A study has shown that 34 hours of Duolingo are equal to 1 university semester of language courses.
