What our learners are saying

Jaylin J.

This course was provided by my class/school. I'm happy they switched over to this platform, as it seems to be far more up to date than the last program they were using. Keep up the amazing work, everyone involved with making this/these course(s) a reality.

Edward H.

The finger-spelling and receptive practice helped me feel comfortable signing with a Deaf person. I got to practice watching Dr. Byron again and again until I knew what he exactly was signing!

Lilly B.

This is the most comprehensive online ASL course I've seen! Dr. Bridges makes it so much fun to learn.

Adam R.

It’s regrettable that I took so long to start learning sign language. I feel like I have a great foundation and vocabulary, and soon I will begin signing with my friends that know ASL.
