She does a great job at making sure the language sticks.

Chanee is amazing. My daughter (just turned eight) could not be more psyched for these lessons. She has been a kid who has fizzled fast around different kinds of lessons and this fire keeps on burning! She is learning a lot in such a short time. We are hoping actually increase lessons.

"I take group lessons online. I enjoy taking classes with Eduardo! I used to get very nervous if I made a mistake. Now if I make a mistake its corrected and he encourages to make your best guess. Without that I think I wouldn't have built up my confidence in myself. He teaches you the rules of ASL but shows you how to put your personality and emotion into it. You cant go wrong learning with him. All of this from just group lessons. He's an amazing teacher!"

What's the Difference Between ASL & BSL?

Have you been wondering, "What's the difference between ASL and BSL?" This is a great question, and deserves a little more background. First of all, did you know that sign language is not universal? Just like there are numerous spoken languages (around 6,500) used across the globe, there are also many sign languages (somewhere between 138-300) used by various Deaf communities. Though it’s a common belief, sign languages do not stem from a country’s spoken language. The natural develo …

What are the Different Types of Sign Languages?

Many people are surprised or even shocked to learn that American Sign Language is not universal. However, when you think about how many spoken languages there are across the globe, it makes sense that sign language would be the same. After all, American Sign language is its own language with its own grammar, idioms, and everything else needed to be a language completely separate from English. Different types of sign language are developed in different regions around the globe, just like spok …
