This American Sign Language course introduces over 200 new signs, with dialogues in each unit dealing with the motivation for learning ASL, occupations, ordering food in a restaurant, and shopping. The course illustrates more ways in which a variety of ASL sentence structures can be used to form conversational sentences. It also includes cultural insights into the lives of people in the Deaf community, including topics such as the different meanings of ASL signs, facial expressions, and body movement. This course features interactive elements: live one-on-one signing appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. There is a strong emphasis on learning to sign more fluently. This is the third course in a four-part ASL series (ASL 041, 043, 051, and 053).

Course Details

All signing appointments require high-speed internet access (hardwired if possible) and a webcam. For your final exam, plan ahead with your proctor to ensure you have access to a DVD player to view the videos during the exam.
