I learned ASL in high school as a second language. My college did not offer ASL classes, therefore, I taught others in my university's ASL club. I mentored students there to teach them vocabulary and engage in basic conversations. Aside from formal lessons, I also find it beneficial for my student's to use ASL to transcribe personal songs of theirs! This is the best way to combine vocabulary and grammar for ASL. I can share my Youtube page where I post my personal transcriptions of ASL songs for students if they want examples or additional practice interpreting.

What is Black ASL?

Even less people realize that ASL is not universal, but unique to the US and parts of Canada. Therefore, it’s probable that very few people living in the US realize that ASL has variations. Just as with spoken languages, which have various dialects and accents, there are also variations within ASL, and age, race, location, socio-economic c …
