Looking to improve yourself this year? There’s a skill that can boost your job prospects and supercharge your brain in the process: American Sign Language (ASL).
It may seem odd to think that a form of communication developed to help the deaf and hard of hearing can have such a big impact, even on those who can hear, but any language can open new doors, no matter the job. Studies have found that people who know ASL show better spatial reasoning and other cognitive benefits.
You may think sign language is tough to learn, but it can be surprisingly easy to pick up with the proper training. That’s exactly what you’ll get in The Complete 2022 American Sign Language Lifetime Membership Bundle—a full online learning program that includes quizzes, video presentations, and a wealth of ebook reference material.
This isn’t some collection of YouTube how-to videos. The curriculum is accredited with Continuing Professional Development, so it’s focused on getting new learners up to speed and communicating as quickly as possible. Earn a certification for each level completed, and you can use the quizzes to augment training videos and sharpen your skills along the way.
Because ASL (like English) is a somewhat fluid language, you’ll learn multiple ways to communicate some popular phrases. Not only will you become proficient in ASL through this platform, but you can also take courses that cover scuba diving hand signals and a version of ASL modified for babies and toddlers. All told, the bundle includes more than 100 hours of online training, as well as a digital edition of the American Sign Language Book.
