Learn American Sign Language at your own pace. You will learn the manual alphabet and how to improve your expressive and receptive fingerspelling skills. You will learn signs, but more importantly, how to communicate with Deaf people, building on previously learned material each week. Finally, you will learn about Deaf culture, which will help you understand and communicate better with Deaf people.
