American Sign Language (ASL) for Beginners Level 1


MUSIC & LANGUAGES -
Winter/Spring 2024

Are you motivated to learn SIGN language? ASL is the visual gestural language used by the Deaf community. It has its own unique grammar, sentence structure, and facial expressions. 

This class is for anyone that is new to ASL or looking for a refresher.   Don is part of the deaf community and promises this immersive class will be fun and filled with plenty of conversation as well as practical exercises.  In the first class, we will have an interpreter to help communicate the class syllabus.  

In these 10 sessions, you will learn about Deaf culture and how to communicate with basic introductions, numbers, alphabets, colors, food, people, places, restaurants, geography, etc. Handouts and videos will also be introduced weekly to help reinforce your newly learned skills.  Some homework will be assigned to help you progress with ease.  

Recommended minimum age:  High School

This class will meet inside CVU.
