Ratings and Reviews
I love that this app has Deaf creators. There are a variety of lessons for conversational ASL on different subjects. The app is easily searchable and has different Deaf people presenting the ASL lessons that help students see a variety & nuance of ASL. Presenters are engaging & help students understand ASL is more than just what hands are doing. Phrases are translated to English captions as they are signed so that differences in grammar & sentence structure can be understood. They also have an excellent Instagram account for receptivity practice that goes beyond what is taught in the app. Excellent start for those beginning ASL or looking to brush up if you are out of practice. I found the $10 to be more than reasonable especially as more units get added.
I’ve recently lost the use of my voice, and I’m trying to teach myself some basic ASL. The videos are wonderful, informative and educational.
I’ve read a lot of reviews for this app, and the biggest complaint seems to be single use of profanity. The app teaches you the sign for “eff you” (which was surprising, I thought that was just The Finger, but I was wrong?), and some parents were upset about that. Personally, while I’d never use that sign, I’m still glad the app showed me what it means so I can recognize it. No speech-impaired people are going to cuss me out now, at least not without me knowing it! This is an educational app, so I’m glad this was in here.
Great leaping point
One app alone, no matter how great, will never be able to teach all the complexities and nuances of a language and it's culture. But this is a great tool to add on my journey towards mastery. $10 is worth it seeing that I still haven't been able to get through learning all the videos yet after 4 months but I can always go back too look again. I also spent $10 on chipotle the other day so I figure a learning app is more useful and long lasting. Also need to point out, out of the multitudes of videos teaching hundreds of signs, the people who decided of focus on the single foul sign or the occasional "useful" fun signs need to take a chill pill.
