Great app

Worth the price. My plug and reminder, you are paying for Deaf individuals work compensation which is a big deal. Second, I have been taking classes with people in my local ASL Deaf cohort and decided to try this out to support my receptive and maintenance skills. It teaches features of sign, fingerspelling and builds in a very visual way that Deaf people teach as well as uses ASL grammar which, as a hearing person has been the biggest learning curve since the structure is different and using this app helps to demonstrate that and break it down in an interactive way. This is learning a second language, it doesn’t follow English grammatical rules, so if you become frustrated, yes, you’re learning a different language not just a visual version of What you speak. Looking through the upcoming courses and the concepts that this app will teach me in the future, I am excited to use this app as a support as I continue to interact with my local community and develop my ability to effectively communicate with them. Additionally, the dictionary tool is absolutely amazing and I love looking up a word I haven’t gotten to that I don’t already know. Yes, over the year it may feel pricey to some, but remember, you are compensating paying real people and this will help you to engage with real people in the world. The perspective of that can shift that this really is pretty small relative to the impact you can have on others.

Not just ASL. Deaf culture, too!

I almost never take the time to write reviews, but this app is fabulous. I am on a 43 day streak, and I am so delighted with my progress. For context, I spent some time in deaf circles as a child, more than 40 years ago, but have had almost no ASL practice since then. In just a few entertaining minutes a day, this app has helped me regain everything I once knew and then some. It starts out deceptively easy, but has a phenomenal depth of both ASL (including grammar!) and Deaf culture. I am so glad that I got a year subscription. I often do a lesson first thing in the morning, but if I forget, it gently reminds me not to break my streak come afternoon. My progress has been such that, last weekend, I felt confident enough to show up at a deaf gathering in my town.

I really like that there is no sound and that the teachers are deaf themselves. This forces me to really work on understanding sign language, rather than lipreading or depending on speech or captions. My only suggestion would be to add a feedback button. There are occasional text errors which could easily be pointed out if there was a forum to do so. overall, highly highly highly recommend this app. I’m having a blast with it!

Why make poor people suffer more?

(Edit: I was just charged for another month after very clearly canceling my subscription, absolutely not okay, I only have $1 and something cents in my checking now, why on earth would you do that? I have to wait until after Christmas to have money again, so, guess I can't buy anymore gifts this year. Thanks for totally screwing me over!)
If I'm going to pay that much money to learn sign language, I might as well just go to my local community college and take a class, this is absolutely ridiculous, it's great to be able to compensate people, but if you don't have money, and you need to learn sign language, you are absolutely screwed here. It should be set up like Duolingo, where you can choose to get more lessons quicker by doing premium, or you just use it daily to do one lesson a day, maybe have ads if that will help, but seriously? Forcing subscriptions? Really? Are you actually serious with that? 7 days is not enough to learn a whole other language for a free trial. Forcing people to pay for something that they need but cannot afford, is not cool, useful, or necessary. There are clearly plenty of people who are able to pay, and do pay, so why not take their money, and use that to let the rest of us use the app too? It's like you don't even want people to learn sign language, unless they're loaded on cash of course. Greed will be the death of this world and you're proving my point. DO BETTER!!!!
