Last week, I began looking around for more resources other than YouTube to help me learn ASL. Last week, I talked about some apps that I had found, but unfortunately, they weren’t as helpful as I had hoped they would be. So this week I began to look for other online learning tools and I came across a free online ASL course offered by Gallaudet University. To participate, you have to sign up for an account, and then you have access to a range of free lessons and modules.
This is one of the better and more helpful resources I have found for ASL thus far. I like that all their lessons are done through videos without any type of sound and they are sometimes accompanied by subtitles, but not always. At the end of each module, there is always a recap and quiz, which helps you to know what you have learned and what you might still need to practice more with.
As far as I can tell right now, there appears to only be 4 modules, and I am wondering if after these 4 have been completed, if more will become available or if you will have to pay to continue, or if that’s simply just all they offer.
My plan for the next week is to continue using this course to build my knowledge base in ASL.
