There’s a website where you can learn ASL on your own and it is free and the woman on there, her name is Rochelle Barlow, she runs the site and she actually is a homeschool teacher and teaches ASL. I am passing this on to you guys cause most people on here is open-minded. Well, whoever of y’all reads this will possibly ignore this but if you are a curious george like me and wants to learn ASL she’s your gal. 

Rochelle has a free program called Learn ASL in 31 days, currently I am on day 10ish or 12, (idk I’m on learning my numbers currently) but I believe this site will help people that are either curious about ASL and just wants to learn, or actually is Deaf but can’t afford to going to actual class or something, or just hard of hearing. 

I am truly in love with learning with Rochelle, she isn’t those interpreters that will talk while she signs, (and I’ve searched through Youtube how to sign but the person talking will distract me and I would get confused) and it is all in video which is a good thing. I found her through Youtube, that’s where she has all her videos. Just check out her site. You’ll like it. 

Another good resource is Bill Vicars of lifeprint.com

he has a youtube channel where he has tons of ASL lessons. He’s HoH and there is no speaking in any of his videos!

lifeprint.com is one of my go-to’s for vocabulary because he has videos of him signing almost every word in lifeprint’s dictionary

ASLpro.com has a good dictionary as well!

Linguti – The new language learning platform which is fun and effective.

Sorry duolingo but I think I’ve found someone new 😍

I wish they had Greek too!

They’re coming out with Chinese soon, too!

I tested it out on French and it seems to be very similar to Rosetta Stone – but it’s free, and teaches grammar. The price of Rosetta Stone and the fact that it doesn’t teach grammar are the only huge drawbacks of it, so Linguti seems to be really good!

#THAT’S ALL REY’S EVER WANTED#FOR SOMEONE TO COME BACK FOR HER#AND ALL FINN WANTED TO DO WAS GET AS FAR AWAY FROM THE FIRST ORDER AS HE COULD#BUT THEN THEY TOOK REY AND HE HAD TO GO BACK FOR HER BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT HE DOES#AND ALL FINN’S WANTED IS TO BE ABLE TO EXPRESS HIS COMPASSION AND EMPATHY AND LOVE FOR OTHERS#AND REY DOES THAT WITH HIM#SHE THROWS HERSELF INTO HIS ARMS#AND IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW THESE TWO ARE LITERALLY MADE FOR EACH OTHER#THEY’RE THE ANTIDOTE TO THE OTHER’S PAIN AND NOW IM IN PAIN

OK, but you know what else is going on in this scene that bears mentioning?  I didn’t even catch it until like… the fourth time I saw the movie.  (I’M A BIT SLOW SOMETIMES, OK.  -.-;;;)

Rey understands Shyriiwook.

I can’t imagine that many Wookiee hang out on Jakku.  Desert climate + permanent fur coat =/= happy Wookiee.  And Rey doesn’t get off Jakku much.  😛  So where did she pick that up, I wonder? 

I mean, it’s certainly true that the peoples of Star Wars tend to be multilingual.  I just think that’s an odd one for her to have picked up.  So she either learned it REALLY quickly upon leaving Jakku, or she already knew it (and somehow retained it) from when she was a young child.  And I want to know more.

this is ReadLang. it is a cute little website that gives you all kinds of texts to read in your learning language.

when you sign in, you go to a dashboard that shares your progress so far. because i have just joined this website today, i’m still working on the opening progress page.

right now, i’m working on finding cool stuff to read in spanish. ReadLang will give you texts in your target language at the level and word count you want! check it out, it is pretty cool.

don’t know a word? click it! ReadLang will define it for you. free accounts will let you get 10 translations per day, but paid accounts ($5 per month) can get unlimited translations per day. you’ll be able to see your translations here:

lastly, there are flashcards. this is a really useful feature. it even charts the amount of studying you did each day. 

i’m definitely adding this to my favorite list for online language resources. reading is an excellent way of studying a new language, and ReadLang makes it easier to do just that.

@callmetierradactyl this looks perfect for you!
