A course for people with a basic understanding of American Sign Language (ASL) who wish to acquire more sophisticated communication skills. Guided by a deaf native signer, students develop greater conversational fluency, expand their sign vocabulary, and improve their fingerspelling ability. Practical role-playing exercises and individual presentations of the ASL face, hand, and body language give them the tools to communicate with deaf and hard of hearing people in a variety of social and professional settings. Some assigned projects take students into the deaf community. In class, students are strongly encouraged to communicate using ASL only. This course is led by a deaf native signer.Prerequisite: American Sign Language Level 1 or the equivalent or permission of the instructor.
Course Open to: Degree Students
