How are you feeling? Happy? Excited? Tired? Learn how to sign a variety of feelings and emotions in American Sign Language today for free. Below I have included a variety of resources that can help you build up your vocabulary in ASL.
The video featured below for example is from ASL Connect, a free resource from Gallaudet University. These free videos can be a great way to learn some of the basics of ASL. I also included a few other videos to help further expand your vocabulary and help familiarize yourself with multiple variations. Be sure to check out the full list below the video.

Ready to put what you have learned into practice? Our next free ASL group practice session on August 12th, 2020 will have the theme “Feelings and Emotions,” so be sure to come join us and tell us how you’re feeling!
These practice sessions are a great way to get some real world practice and have an opportunity to network with others that are at a similar skill level as you. Once in a breakout room, students are encouraged to turn off their voices completely and use what they have learned to have a conversation with their partner or group.
These sessions last about 30 minutes and afterwards we usually will share with you some tips and tricks that can help you learn the language faster, be more confident, and understand others more clearly. During our next session on August 12th, we will be talking about the importance of using what you know and ways you can become more involved in the community. These segments are interpreted so that both hearing and Deaf will be able to follow along.
August 12, 2020 – 5:00 PM Pacific
Practice Session: Feelings and Emotions
Discussion: How to become more involved in the community

When you join, just let us know what skill level you are … new, beginner, intermediate, or advanced … and we will create a small breakout room for you to join. These sessions are great for increasing your exposure to the language, getting out of your comfort zone, and using what you have been learning in a real world setting. They really help us get nail all three fundamental keys of learning a new language.
