ASL 100 Tutorials

ASL tutorials, tips, advice, and other blogs posts for ASL students and learners who learn ASL as a second language (L2).

These tutorials are not exhaustive. Posts may be continually added upon needs or requests. A word of caution: online lessons are, in any way, no substitute for face-to-face instruction. I strongly recommend you to take a face-to-face course to attain a high level of communicative competency as well as socializing with signers in the Deaf/ASL community.

ASL 101 + ASL 102 curriculum

The level 1 usually consists of two semester courses ASL 101 and 102 (or ASL 111 and ASL 112 respectively or its variants at universities and colleges), each 60-65 credit hours (120-130 hours total).

The ACTFL-standard textbooks, that are commonly acceptable, are Signing Naturally Level 1 and Master ASL Level 1.
