LANG 190
Fall 2023
Section: 01   02  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Disability Studies

This course is the first (1st) of six American Sign Language (ASL) courses encompassing two terms for Elementary, two for Intermediate, and two for Advanced. The two Elementary ASL courses are an introduction to communication in ASL. You will acquire a beginner's vocabulary and grammar while starting to build a preliminary understanding of the Deaf perspective on life. The course will be taught primarily in ASL and with clarifications in written English as needed. Interactive activities in class and homework assignments will provide you with ample opportunities to practice communication in ASL as much as possible. Because of the absence of a standardized written system for ASL, you will complete many of the assignments by recording yourself on video.
