I am pleased to announce — after 10 years in the making and 20 years in the thinking — Janna and I have completed our Hardcore ASL online learning program!
We offer four unique angles for teaching you ASL online.
1. 350 videos across Levels 1-7
2. Online Learning Portal access for discussion and assignments
3. One-on-One teaching compressed into 3 week courses
4. Our “Picture Yourself Learning American Sign Language” textbook and DVD
The price of our textbook is not included in the cost of the courses. We use our textbook and DVD extensively across all Hardcore ASL course levels.
We don’t just sell you video access and let you learn on your own. In fact — if you buy our courses and just watch the videos — you will not really understand the how or the why of what you are viewing unless you plan to just mirror the movements instead of purely understanding ASL as a foreign language on a core level.
By using our Online Learning Portal, you will be immersed in ASL and in Deaf Culture and we will teach you how to enjoy, and understand, what you need to learn from our teaching videos.
Because we are offering these American Sign Language classes online — and because you set your own learning goals and agenda — you can take these courses without worrying about being in class at a certain time or place.
Our goal was to replicate online the sort of intensive ASL teaching strategy we use in the traditional classroom and finally time, technology, and the tide of urgency pressed us into getting our long-awaited Hardcore ASL program online and functioning.
All classes are private and they are available now and you can sign up online! There’s no need to wait for a class to fill because you alone are the entire class!
