Welcome to ASL on the
This website is unlike any other American Sign Language website
available (at least to my knowledge). On this site, you will find
tutorials on the grammar of ASL instead of word-to-sign
I have provided links to reliable dictionaries if needed; however, this
site assumes that you know quite a few signs and would now like to move
on to the language aspect.
ASL Page Which Will Attempt to Help With Structure
Navigating this site should be
fairly easy. All you need to do is click on the links to the left. Each
link is fairly explanatory, with the theme of "basic" in each. This is
the best thing to remember. All this site is, and ever will be, is a
basic guide to American Sign Language structure. The easiest and best
thing to do, in order to learn ASL correctly, is to take a class on it.
That cannot be expressed enough. When you're in a class, you can see
and interact with other people who are signing, and hands-on helps the
most in learning anything. To take a class, check colleges and
universities in your area. If you're still in high school, you can put
in a request to implement a sign language class in your school. All
right! Now's the time to get going on to Lesson #1- A Basic History.
