Resources for ASL?

Does anyone know any good resources I can use to improve my listening comprehension for American Sign Language? I'm already in ASL 2, (I take it in school) but I still don't consider myself all too great at listening, while I'm okay at signing myself.

I watched a video by Langfocus where he basically says that a way to improve your comprehension of a language is to study it every day by watching videos that are spoken in the language. I'm pretty sure, despite being a Signed Language, that this as well can improve comprehension.

If you know of any resources I can use, please tell me. Thanks!

I don't know if anyone's heard of her, but I know of a yt signer, Trish Wooten. The signs I've learned from her have been pretty helpful :)

When some survey here asked what languages should be implemented next, I mentioned (among other things) ASL. My post on ASL got downvoted like 4 times; yours was at -2 before I upvoted you. What do people here have against it? It has a real use, unlike Klingon, High Valyrian, or really even Esperanto. I'm personally not deaf, don't know anybody that is, and not learning ASL myself, but I do see the importance of it. I don't know how to help you other than what's already written in the comments, I just want to know what's up about it. Good luck with your studies.

I don't know but a lot of major public speeches are now having a signing translation with them try searching YouTube for public address and signed would be my guess

    Your absolutely best resource is your local Deaf community.
