You don’t need to spend any money to start learning American Sign Language (ASL) with these resources.
SO, YOU WANT to learn sign language on a budget. You could be motivated by a desire to understand deaf friends better, communicate with relatives who are hard of hearing, or express yourself after experiencing hearing loss. No matter what piques your interest in American Sign Language (ASL), attending in-person classes is the fastest, most reliable way to master the language.
But plenty of people simply do not have the time or financial resources to attend sign language classes. Although studying ASL online cannot replicate the nuanced experience of in-person communication, curious students who are willing to invest time do not need to pay money for beginner lessons. All of the learning options on our list are either completely free or offer a generous amount of content in front of their paywalls.
The online ASL for Free program from Gallaudet University is not included because it is temporarily unavailable due to a curriculum restructuring—ASL for Free may be added in a future update. For more information about ASL and deaf culture and history, visit the resource-rich website for the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center at Gallaudet.
