AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE

&

DEAF CULTURE

Basic Conversation Part 1 

JULY 2 TO AUGUST 22, 2019

 
This offering is for those with little or no sign language fluency. This is a carefully curated non- credit American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf Culture course that is aimed at creating basic conversational fluency and cultural understanding to build respect for the difference between the hearing and Deaf worlds. This course has significant customization which will enhance the participants’ understanding of the language and culture throughout the 16 sessions.
 
ASL & Deaf Culture will be provided in a safe, fun and relaxed environment. Activities are designed to build confidence in the language with opportunities to learn new vocabulary, including comprehension of more complex grammatical principles. There will be a strong emphasis on the use of both receptive and expressive skills, as well as key facial expressions and body positioning that are embedded in the grammatical structure of the language.
 
All of this will be conducted in a “no-vocalized-language-zone” for the full sessions. So please leave your speech at the door. Participants will be encouraged to carry on their ASL practice outside of the classroom whenever possible. A certificate of completion will be given at the end of this course.
