WHAT IF I TOLD YOU YOU'RE ONLY 26 SIGNS AWAY FROM COMMUNICATING CLEARLY WITH ANY DEAF PERSON IN SIGN LANGUAGE?

If you know the alphabet, you can communicate literally anything to a Deaf person, even if you know little or no sign at all. 

Does this sound like you...?

You've started learning ASL to communicate with a Deaf family member, Deaf friends or maybe with a Deaf person who has come into your life (kudos to you!) but you haven't seen the progress you want. 

You struggle with fingerspelling because you can't remember some letters or sometimes mix letters up.

Whenever you forget a letter, you start fingerspelling the whole alphabet until you reach the letter you were trying to remember.

Reading fingerspelling is a challenge, even at slow speeds and it's affecting your confidence when communicating with Deaf people. 

If you said yes to any or all of the above, you are in the right place!

Wouldn't it be amazing if you could...?
