Customer Reviews

Love!

If you want to learn ASL (or any other language) you have to take a real class--videos are not substitutes for real instruction. But this app is a great resource for extra practice!! The example sentences are quite long, which I LOVE because it demonstrates more grammar.

WHAT A WASTE

I bought this program..they mouth the words so the quiz is kinda stupid. Loaded it but only got thru M...where's the rest??? save yer $$ and take a local class. You'll get more out of it...

Great program

I have a deaf friend that went through the whole program she love it. She said that it was great for those trying to Learn ASL as myself.
