Welcome to the American Sign Language Academy
American Sign Language is the fourth most used language in the United States. It is an AMERICAN language, not a foreign one. It was developed by Deaf Americans.
There are many signed languages in the world, organized into language groups, as spoken languages are. ASL is in the language family with French and Vietnamese sign languages. It has no connection to British Sign Language.
ASL Academy is a language program designed to bring students all the way to fluency. Our teaching approach builds progressive skills to allow you to reach that goal. We take the shortest route to putting information into your long-term memory.
The development of this approach is from the study of brain physiology, first and second language acquisition, long and short-term memory function, and many years of experience.
Our program is thorough and complete. It is affordable. It is flexible, allowing students to progress at their own rate. The course descriptions page provides details.
