Why Learn Offline?
Portability – When the package is downloaded onto your computer, you don’t need an internet connection to continue studying. You can study any time, anywhere.
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!
“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.”
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.
The Start ASL Offline PDF Course
The Offline PDF Course involves printing or reading our included popular ASL_Lessons.pdf file to follow all of our Start ASL lessons. When the file mentions vocabulary or lesson videos to watch, you will watch the videos that are included in the download. Everything is at your fingertips!
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.
You will receive all of the lesson videos for all three course levels.
ASL Course Workbooks
You will receive a workbook for each course level to print and complete the course activities and quizzes offline.
You will receive all of the vocabulary videos for all three course levels.
While the online class is perfect for some individuals, others need the portability and convenience of the offline package. Start ASL aims to please every ASL student, no matter what their needs or preferences.

“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.
