08 Feb American Sign Language (ASL) Online Course – Level 1
Learn American Sign Language, the 4th most used language in the U.S.
American Sign Language is primarily used by hearing impaired people within the United States and Canada. It is, however, the fourth most used language in the United States, and is becoming increasingly popular as more hearing people learn about the world of the deaf and want to be able to interact and communicate with friends and colleagues that are hearing impaired.
Learning ASL is a great way to get started, and has other benefits for anyone that learns it as well.
Many people teach their hearing children a little bit of ASL before they can even talk. It can help little ones to learn how to effectively express their needs better before their verbal communication develop. ASL is a visual language and it often uses variations of signs to create visual stories. The process of making these stories involves critical thinking that could be applied to story telling and creating messages in other languages!
