Does your schedule change week-to-week? Do you have commitments that keep your hours late? We offer courses specifically tailored to your schedule, whatever that may be. On-demand means there is no class to "sign up for", or schedule of classes to join. You start when you're ready, on your schedule. You can start learning ASL as soon as you like, often in less than 24 hours.
Have a look at our most common questions below from other past and current students. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us.
HOW DO WE "SIGN UP"?
There is no sign-up process to take ASL 1. You simply pay for your class, and have a zoom link emailed to you. However, there is a free screening exam before ASL 2-5 can be taken or tutoring is given. To schedule a screening, please click here. After your screening has been completed, click to pay and schedule your class. A Zoom link will be e-mailed to you.
WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS ARE THERE?
We offer pay-as-you-go before each class, full payment of the course upfront (at a discounted rate), and you can also pre-pay for blocks of time.
ARE GROUP CLASSES OFFERED?
Yes, group classes can be arranged at a discounted rate, but you must provide a friend or family member for the classes. Each person must have their own computer and camera connection. A cellphone is too small to communicate via Zoom with chat.
WHAT ARE THE TUTORING PLANS?
The tutoring plan is designed for students who are currently taking ASL courses either through us or another institution and who are seeking help with their skills outside of class. The plan is also good for students who have taken ASL and need practice with their skills.
