Intermediate American Sign Language I|
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Disability Studies|
This course is the third (3rd) of six American Sign Language (ASL) courses encompassing two terms for Elementary, two for Intermediate, and two for Advanced. The two Intermediate ASL courses are an introduction to communication in ASL. You will expand your vocabulary and enhance your grammar while starting to get a basic understanding of the Deaf experience. 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.
