Welcome to ASL on the WEB!  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 dictionaries.  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.

The 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.
