Whether you’re learning American Sign Language in school or rely on ASL as a primary form of communication with a deaf family member, there is no better way to gain confidence in your conversational skills than by immersing yourself in the Deaf community. Learning the ins and outs of the language directly from deaf ambassadors themselves is invaluable. But gaining access into their world, let alone practice one-on-one with a deaf individual, can be difficult.
SignOn, a “Virtual Immersion Program,” connects the hearing and deaf communities through authentic learning interactions. Through our program, ASL learners have the unique opportunity to communicate one-on-one with a Deaf ASL Ambassador that has grown up using ASL as a first language. SignOn gives people the confidence they need to engage with the Deaf Community while practicing and retaining language techniques.
