In celebration of a decade of teaching Hardcore ASL online, we are delighted to provide you free access to all 500 videos we use to teach Hardcore ASL Levels 1-7. You will likely need to purchase our textbook to get full use of the videos, but if you're already an ASL student or teacher, you may find the videos alone a great resource to support your study:

Hardcore ASL Levels 1-7 Book Cover


We chose to exclusively sell our textbook on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing and, the beauty part is, you don't need a Kindle to read the book! You can read the textbook on any smartphone or tablet or computer. Here's the blurp from the textbook's Introduction that explains how Add-On Videos Access and Private Teaching leap from the book:

This textbook encompasses only the textual part of our entire Hardcore ASL learning program -- there are no images included and this ebook weighs in at over 90,000 words and 250 standard typewritten pages! You are reading an ASL behemoth! American Sign Language is a visual, moving, mode of communication, and thatís why we offer online videos, and hands on instructional help -- for separate purchase on our HardcoreASL.com website -- to help round out your learning.

At the request of our students and other ASL instructors, we have broken up the pieces of our Hardcore ASL teaching into a more financially manageable buffet. You may now choose to learn each Hardcore American Sign Language level in three weeks as originally designed, or you may decide to learn at a slower pace that you alone set. We have removed the clock from your learning with the release of this book. You may finish the entire learning series in 21 weeks, or you may finish as you wish in your own time.

Our latest outreach program is -- sosASL.com -- an emergency website portal the Deaf can useto communicate with Hearing first responders like firefighters, police officers, EMTs and hospital staff.

Using American Sign Language images, and text in English and other languages, sosASL.com is a quick and clickable solution to an urgent problem that will help keep the lines of communication alive until acertified interpreter appears on scene.
