ASL, anyone?

As of a couple days ago, I had a random urge* to learn American Sign Language, also known as ‘ASL’. I think it’s really eye-opening to learn a language that is so different from – yet so similar to – spoken languages.

I stumbled on Rochelle Barlow‘s YouTube series Learn ASL in 31 Days, and I find it extremely helpful. Invest 5-10 minutes a day for a month, and you’ll be able to hold a basic conversation!

As for an English to ASL dictionary, I’ve found Handspeak to be the most helpful.
