Learn A Language Online | Rocket Languages -Apple mobile app, Android app, and Web

Rocket Languages is one of the very few language learning apps that offer courses in both orally spoken languages and ASL. The ASL course is sold separately from the other languages ($99.95 for lifetime access, sometimes discounted), but it uses the same platform as other languages and therefore has support for quizzes, tracking your progress, and everything else you’d expect in a language learning app. You can try the first few lessons for free with Rocket Languages’ mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, or Android, or via the web app.

The ASL course includes information about deaf culture and the history of American Sign Language. When it comes to learning signs, each sign is a standalone video, so working your way through the material is a choppy experience, compared with other ASL learning sites that give you a longer video with multiple words taught at once. Every lesson has a theme, such as Inflection and Intensity, Baby Sign Language, Traveling, Different Dialects, and three lessons with religious content (learning ASL is common among religious people who actively convert).
