Multiple Ways to Learn – With our Offline Course, you can choose to learn using our included offline website, our popular PDF lesson files, or even a combination of both!

Video Options – Watching the videos on your computer or device allows you to use the video player of your choice. This may also allow you to watch the videos in slow motion to catch any signs you may have missed!

And more!

“I just wanted to say thank you for this program. I have always been interested in ASL, but it was never offered at any of the schools I went to. I’m really glad I found your program. I just finished Unit 5, and I think I’m picking it up really fast. Thank you so much for making this program available."


“I am enjoying this class very much. I appreciate the way it is structured. I don’t have a favorite part I like every section. I am progressing little by little. I learn a little more with each lesson. Thank you so very much for giving me this opportunity to learn. I am late-deaf I need to learn how to communicate in ASL.”

What's Included?

You will receive all of the following in downloadable ZIP format immediately after purchase:

Two Course Options

There are two different ways to take our Offline Course. You can choose either option or use a combination of both. They both use the same Workbook to complete the required activities, so switching between the two is extremely easy. 

The Start ASL Offline Webpage Course

The Offline Webpage Course uses the HTML and other support files included in the download to create an offline website on your computer or device. The files are opened in your internet browser for an online course experience without requiring an internet connection. 

This option is useful if you have regular access to a computer or device and prefer learning in a website-like environment, but do not have reliable access to an internet connection.

This option is useful if you don't always have access to a computer or device, like to learn without constant screen time, or are learning in a group setting.

DJSC! A Student's Guide to Mastering ASL Grammar

A Student's Guide to Mastering ASL Grammar 

The Student’s Guide to Mastering ASL Grammar provides the fundamentals of perfect ASL grammar so you can sign confidently  

Students taking ASL classes are often expected to pick up on the grammar rules themselves, by being a part of the deaf community, or by immersing themselves in sign language from the beginning. If you’re learning on your own or you’re unable to sign with others often, it can be extremely difficult to pick up these rules. This guide will help you:  

  • Make sure you’re learning American Sign Language.  
  • Learn ASL signs and vocabulary concepts you won’t find in most ASL dictionaries.  
  • Learn ASL phonology and how signs are formed.  
  • Learn ASL morphology and how to inflect signs to create meaning.  
  • Learn ASL syntax and how to form correct sentences.  
  • And so much more!  

This incredible guide provides you with the confidence you need to communicate fluently and correctly. Unfortunately, many signers go years without picking up the proper grammar, even when they’re conversing with other signers regularly. You don’t have to let this happen to you! 

“There is so much more to signing than just learning the hand shapes and movements. ASL is all about its own syntax, phonology and grammar. This book does a great job of exploring what makes ASL its own unique language. Start ASL has done it again!” John Miller Co-Founder, Educator, Signing Savvy LLC

DJSC! A Student's Guide to Deaf Community Terminology

“Dear Michelle Jay and the Start ASL team, Your online videos and downloads are a great tool to learn real ASL. Many classes that attempt to teach ASL do not explain syntax and sentence structure correctly. They do not demonstrate REAL people signing. You do 😉 thank you, it is about time that someone who knows the deaf community shared their knowledge. God Bless you all.”


“I took all 3 classes and was amazed at the attention to detail Michelle took to design this course. Michelle’s course is organized, well-thought out, and fun. I learned a lot! The videos were my favorite part. Since I already had quite a bit of vocabulary under my belt, I wanted practice reading a variety of signers while learning ASL grammar. This course gave me just that. I highly recommend it for anyone learning ASL. THANK YOU, Michelle Jay!”

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the offline course on my mobile device?  

For mobile device users, we suggest downloading the files to your computer first, unzipping the files, and then transferring them to your device. You can also use an app like WinZip or iZip for Apple devices or WinZip or AndroZip for Android devices to unzip the zip folders directly on your device. Also, make sure you have programs available on your device to open PDF, HTML, and MP4 video files. 

Can I burn the videos to a DVD?

If you have a DVD burner and the skills necessary to do this, then yes! If you're able to do that, you can use a DVD player to watch the videos instead of a computer or mobile device. 

How big are the zip folders? 

The zipped course folders are roughly 400 MB each. So, for each course, make sure you have 400 MB of space on your computer or device. Or, for all three courses, 1.2 GB total. 

Can more than one student use this purchase? 

The Start ASL Offline Course is meant to be used by one student. If multiple students from different families will be learning together, then multiple packages should be purchased to accommodate the number of students in the class.

Do I need an internet connection at all? 

You need an internet connection to initially download all the materials. We link to online resources sometimes in the curriculum, but they are not necessary for the course.
