Rated 5 out of 5 by from More please I thought the presentation was very well done. Although I only have a casual interest, I would like to see this as a course. Even if I only develop/retain a rather small vocabulary, I think it would be a nice skill to have some knowledge of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please make this a full course Our granddaughter is deaf, and we want to learn ASL. We've tried out a couple of different on-line classes. This was by far the best. Please continue it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good lesson I have been an ASL interpreter for over 15years. The lesson was excellent, current information about language changes, ie the sign for language as well as cultural information was included (big D vs small d deaf). Very good 1st leasson. My only gripe would be that these lessons should be given by a native language user, someone who is Deaf.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very introductory The instructor is very good but this is only a tiny sample of ASL. And it is listed as 3 classes but there is only one. I wish it was a real course.
