Janna and I are pleased to announce a couple of new features added to our American Sign Language HardcoreASL.com learning portal.


We now, by public and necessary demand, offer American Sign Language fluency evaluations

Colleges, universities, businesses and individuals can get evaluated for ASL proficiency to earn a job or to waive a foreign language requirement and — because of the delights of the Internet — we are able to offer this feature the world over.

The second new feature is an expansion of our incredibly popular, in-person, New York City/Tri-State area — ASL Private Tutoring Program — into the Internet ether! 

We now provide private ASL tutoring via online chat using iChat and Skype!

  1. That is a concern. Good internet video requires a broadband connection and if you want to stream recorded videos, you need to have a big pipe connection to keep the movements clear and precise.

  2. It’s so awesome that you’re going to be able to teach people all over the world. I wonder – is ASL the same everywhere, or are there local “dialects” that might have some people scratching their heads? 🙂

  3. Thank you for the support, Mr. Gordon! We also added today “ASL, Level 1” on our classes page:
    http://hardcoreasl.com/classes.html
    so folks the world over can study ASL online with us using our latest book as the textbook!
    Yes, there are different sorts of Sign Language the world over. “BSL” is “British Sign Language.” We have a book here gifted to us on “Pakistani Sign Language” and so on!

  4. There was a time, Dananjay, when only Skye for Mac could do video chat. Now I see Windows does it as well, so Windows users can use Skype. Mac users can use iChat or Skype.

  5. David & Janna–
    Very impressive!!
    Working in healthcare, we always have to contract out for interpretation.
    If only I could fit one more thing on my plate . . .

  6. Thanks, Donna! We feel for your situation. It’s a terrible thing to have to rely on interpreters because good ones are hard to find and getting them to show up on time or in a dire emergency is never a predictable event.
