American Sign Language

Learn Now!

From our founder Missy Keast

I am deaf and have taught ASL to thousands of students in the last 30 years. I built this website to incorporate all the lessons I have learned teaching those students. Some of them were taking classes for college and high school credit. Others simply wanted to learn ASL. Regardles of your reason for learning, this program, backed by university research, helps you learn to sign faster than any other ASL course. Instead of me telling you how good it is why don't you just try it? For FREE. That's right. I will give you the first 5 modules for free. You can see for yourself how easy it is to learn ASL, to sign naturally, using my system.

Technology

To accelerate your learning my team created the world’s most technically advanced ASL delivery platform. This is not a generic platform for all languages or all courses. This was designed and optimized for ASL. We have a patent pending “Magic Mirror” for instant expressive skills feedback. We have also simulated role play so that you can practice signing to someone even if you are alone. Adaptive vocabulary review is coming soon so that you only practice the words and phrases that you need.

How You Learn

You will learn to sign naturally, the way the deaf and hard of hearing sign. You will become conversationally fluent in American Sign Language so that you can sign ASL with deaf friends and family members. With this program you will learn ASL faster than with any other program available. I guarantee it, Yes there is vocabulary. Yes there are phrases. However, there is much much more. We teach you from the very beginning to just get started and begin to sign. See for yourself.

A Brief History of ASL

In the 1900s three communities in the United States had their own versions of sign language. Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, Henniker, New Hampshire and Sandy River Valley, Maine.

Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet traveled to France to learn about the deaf at the Parisian School for the Deaf. He convinced Laurent Clerc to return to the United States where he founded the American School for the Deaf (ASD) in Hartford, Connecticut. This was in 1817. Laurent Clerc was ASDs first teacher and he taught using LSF.

A majority of ASDs initial students were from Martha's Vineyard where they spoke Martha's Vineyard Sign Language (MVSL). MVSL eventually became the foundation, along with French Sign Language (LSF), for ASL as we know it today.

ASL has its own grammar and structure that is not based on English word order. It is three dimensional and requires eye contact for communication.

Julie Tratnyek

Student

This was a great self study course that helped me start signing phrases the very first day. I was able to go back to the coffee shop and have a short conversation with a new friend. Love it !!!

If you are looking for an American Sign Language curriculum that incorporates all facets of learning, especially receptive language, look no further. ASL Inside provides fun, colorful, clear and concise videos that pull you in to learn more. Their high-quality videos incorporate Deaf culture, vocabulary, phrases and conversations. I have yet to find any ASL curriculum that compares to ASL Inside.

Ida Slezak

Retired Superintendant

This was an amazing course. I was able to quickly learn how to sign to my daughter in law who is deaf. Now the rest of our family is starting to use the course.

Our Signers

This is an amazing group of signers. Some are deaf and some are hard of hearing. We chose them so that you could learn to communicate in ASL no matter what the accent. If you don't already know this fact. Just as in English ASL has many different accents.
