Looking for a way to improve your signing over the summer? Marlee Matlin, the Academy Award© winning Deaf actress, has an ASL app. Fingerspelling, numbers, possession, everyday signs, questions and conversation starters are all FREE in this great app.  There are five optional in-app purchases for additional lessons for $1.99 each.

Marlee Signs is a great app to practice signs and learn new phrases in American Sign Language (ASL). It is not a substitute for sign language classes, but can be an excellent resource to review and look up new signs.

The app is divided into four sections including About, Spell, Library, and Store. The About section provides some interesting information about Marlee and what the app is designed to provide. I really like the Spell section. Type in any word and the app provides real photos of each letter in the word. The real time feature of this app makes it one of the better signing apps that I have seen.

The Library section is where the free lessons are stored. The first lesson on "you" includes seven lessons for basic sign. Numbers, the alphabet, basic questions and conversation starters, possession and a few everyday signs are all demonstrated by Marlee Matlin. The signs can be easily replayed, seen in slow motion or displayed in a full screen on the iPad.

In the Store section includes five additional in-app purchases for $1.99 each. Each in-app purchase allows the user to see what signs are included in an easy-to-read index. The additional lessons include Around You, Home, Around Town, Around World, and Baby Signs.

This free app will be an excellent resource for parents, teachers and students.  Practice and learn new signs with Marlee!
