I was looking for a home study course that could teach me American Sign Language, but I do not know which would be the best one. I want a home study course because I can learn it faster than in a classroom environment and pick up lessons anytime I had the free time to do it whereever I am. It's important to me to know this because there is a need in my community, in my job and in my church. I already know the alphabet and some basic signs that can get by, but I want to be able to speak fluently instead of spelling most of the words I do not know in order to help. I work in a legal office and even though a lot of my coworkers know many other languages like Hebrew, Yiddish, Spanish, Japanese, French, Cantonese and German, nobody here knows sign language and I know that many of our deaf clients would benefit from someone who could properly translate for them.
