Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the American Sign Language alphabet and how to introduce themselves. They'll also learn how to sign their favorite foods and colors and express how they feel.
I grew up around the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. My grandparents and aunt have been teaching and interpreting ASL for 20+ years. I often enjoyed going with them to different Sign Language events, practicing my ASL in voices-off areas, and making new friends. They didn't interpret for me. I was always expected to learn ASL and speak for myself if I wanted to communicate.
Practicing what we learn throughout the mini-course is key. For example, when you learn to fingerspell, spell the things you see. When we learn the colors, sign the colors around you. When we learn feelings, express how you feel in ASL. This will help all that ASL knowledge to stick and you'll remember for years to come.

We will refer to an ASL alphabet chart that I've provided in the welcome post from the website StartASL.com. Students can have this on hand during the class and use this for practice later.
At different points during class I'll ask questions that we've learned in ASL without voicing the question. The learner will be expected to answer in ASL. They can get help if needed. We'll also have role-playing opportunities for students to practice with no voice.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
