We believe that native speaker interaction is the best way to access and understand all aspects of a language (e.g., pronunciation, cultural references, social skills, vocabulary). Today's technology allows us to overcome the limitations of distance and location to allow learners of any language to connect with its native users. Our goal is to provide access to native speakers of a language for those learning that language.

Jennifer has taught ASL for 15 years, mainly at the post-secondary level. She has taught students about the nuances and grammar of ASL such as classifiers, mouthing morphemes, and the five parameters.
