Description:

American Sign Language (ASL) is the fourth 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 provides a hands-on learning environment that will allow the student to learn vocabulary, to produce the signs accurately, to use the signs in appropriate contexts, 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, and discusses deaf awareness and the different systems of signed communication.
