American Sign Language (ASL) is the third most used language in the United States today, and it is the native language of the Deaf in America. The American Deaf work, play and go to school in a variety of settings in which they have no communication with their fellow workers, or supervisors. This class will provide a hands-on learning environment that will allow the student to learn vocabulary, to produce the signs accurately, to use the signs in appropriate concepts, to understand the signs of others, and to understand the culture of the adult who is deaf. This course enables the student to acquire basic conversational sign language skills, discusses deaf awareness and the different systems of signed communication.
