Learn a new language for FREE!

Communication is one of our most basic and most necessary life functions.  We communicate our needs, wants, emotions, our hopes and dreams.  Understanding each other is the key to making communication work, but understanding someone who speaks a different language can be difficult at best.  The American Sign Language University website, created by Dr. William Vicars offers hundreds of free lessons for learners and lesson plans for teachers.  Even if you don’t interact with someone who uses ASL daily, it’s an important language to learn.  I used simple signs with my son before he acquired spoken language to help him communicate his needs to me.  He was able to tell me he was hungry or thirsty or scared before he had the words to do so.  I used the book, Baby Signs, by Linda Acredolo and Susan Goodwin. While the book was helpful (it has now been updated and comes with a cd), I absolutely love the ASLU site and the lessons Dr. Bill has created.  Check it out!
