You’ve come to the right place –

We have a few options for you!

“I am a homeschooling mom… I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in learning to sign. Although we had some challenges we have also had much success. My daughter loves that we can have private conversations without other family members understanding. I am pleased to tell you that this course gave me the knowledge to sign a song at our church Christmas Eve Service.”



“I’m a Deaf and Hard of hearing specialist that works in Ceres, CA and I just found your website on Sunday night. I must say, you have put a ton of hours and heart into this site! I apprecitate all the time you have invested into your site. It will be a true asset to anyone who finds you. Well Done!”

“I’ve been wanting to learn ASL for quite some time. This is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. I love how clear the videos are and that I can do it at my own pace. I also love that there are quizzes to keep me on track. I like going back and watching some of the videos over and over again so that I can really get it. I’m so very impressed and grateful for the hard work that has gone into the class. I’ve only completed the first two units and can’t believe how much I’ve already learned. GREAT JOB!!! Thanks so much!”


“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 too. 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!”
