Fingerspelling

An important piece of sign language is learning and improving your expressive and receptive fingerspelling skills. From the beginning of the course through the end, you'll have opportunities to practice your fingerspelling with quizzes and activities. You'll even be able to start at a slow, beginner speed and progress to a fast, advanced speed by the end of the course.
