Your website is so impressive! I am an RID certified freelance interpreter seeking resources to help improve and expand signing skills in our communities. A signer in Florida sent your information and raved about how it has helped her in her area. You are to be commended. I am sharing your information with our ITP and other interpreter organizations. I pray for your continued success.

I am a high school ASL teacher in Ohio and just discovered your site. This is absolutely awesome!! It is so comprehensive and organized. I am using it for supplemental assignments in my classes. Thank you thank you!


Hundreds of schools use our curriculum in their classrooms and offer enrollment into our Complete Online ASL Course to their students for foreign language learning.

At Start ASL, we have brought together a fantastic team to create a comprehensive online resource that offers: 

  • A Complete 3-Level Online ASL Course and Curriculum, 
  • A learning community of over 5,000 students,  
  • Invaluable instructor support for both teachers and students,  
  • A partnership with GoReact that allows us to provide the most detailed feedback on students’ signing assignments,  
  • A flexible, mobile-friendly platform,  
  • Nine different signers for unmatched receptive learning,  
  • An ASL tutoring program,  
  • Completion certificates and grade reports,  
  • And competitive prices and group discounts.  

What sets you apart from others is not only that you keep your content (books/videos) relevant to the current culture of learners but also make them accessible and affordable and the reason is that attending college classes and/or purchasing textbooks are getting expensive, perhaps cost-prohibitive for most students. This is also why I make my classes/lessons affordable both online and in person for anyone who is interested in learning sign language, plus I find your curriculum design suitable for today’s generation of (signing) students who prefer an informal learning environment (Harkness Table/Method - for instance) with greater emphasis on collaboration by making them feel appreciated and valued on a personal level -- case in point: your ringing endorsements from prominent educators in the signing community as seen in the front matter section of your books had signaled us readers the spirit of inclusion and collaboration or sharing a culture of intellectual responsibility in regard to sign language education.

Thank you for your site and books! You have the resources all in one place. I'm teaching ASL to beginners and was trying to find a good book/site to direct them to. Your site is exactly what they need. I will direct them here and suggest they buy your books as I have. Keep up the great work!


I am an ASL/Interpreter student at a Texas community college and I have to say that your new books in the series DJSC! are amazing! I actually told the staff there that these books are better than the ASL 4 textbooks we used last semester!
