Anywhere between 500,000 to 2 million people communicate via American Sign Language (ASL) in the United States alone, making it the fourth most-used language in the country, behind the likes of Spanish and Chinese. Yet, even if this is the case, there are never enough people looking into learning it.
For people who are part of the deaf or hard of hearing community, the benefits of picking up ASL are apparent. But for able-bodied folks, not only can ASL open you up to an entire community, but it can also improve your job prospects. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for translators and interpreters will increase by at least 20% by the year 2029. Not to mention, you’ll also likely improve your cognitive function, memory, spatial reasoning, and creative ability.
The All-in-One American Sign Language Bundle contains 13 courses to help you become an expert in sign language. With 29 hours of content, highly-rated instructor Able Lingo and Intellezy Trainers will get you acquainted with the fundamentals and nuances of ASL so you can begin using it in your day-to-day life.
Aside from the basic signs, you’ll be guided through sign language’s history, giving you a closer look at where deaf education and oralism originated from. You’ll then learn fingerspelling rules, individual vocabulary words, and how to complete sentences using numbers, pronouns, verbs, and even animal signs. You’ll also learn how to express emotions via signs, as well as how to use the language in the workplace and business settings. By the time you finish, you’ll have mastered useful signs and start communicating using ASL with complete confidence.
For a limited time, you can grab the bundle on sale for only $34.99.
