I encourage sign language students to find a qualified local Deaf tutor or American Sign Language (ASL) instructor to help you learn ASL or fingerspelling. This ASL fingerspelling site is a little tool I put together to help my college ASL students get some receptive fingerspelling practice. It isn't perfect, but it seems to help so I figured I'd share it with the world. If it is of use to you, great!
I wish you the very best!

p.s. If your browser is slow and reloads this page each time you play a new word you might want to make sure your browser is set to get the images from its local cache (memory) - instead of downloading them for each word. If you are using the "Internet Explorer" browser here are instructions: Find the "Tools" menu then go to "Internet Options" > General > Browsing History > Settings > Temporary Internet Files > "Check for newer versions of stored pages," choose "Automatically." That will load the images from your computer's memory (cache) by default and will only download the images again if needed.
