Have your students always wanted to learn American Sign Language? This class is just what they need to get started! We will go from zero to ASL heroes over the course of the school year! Rather than learning random vocabulary words, this course will help students learn how to sign conversationally with the deaf and hard-of-hearing, even if they don’t know how to spell their names!
By the end of the course, students will be able to carry on a basic conversation completely in American Sign Language. They’ll also have the tools they need to move on to more advanced signing concepts later.
It is strongly recommended that sometime during the student's study of ASL, they take my class, Introduction to Deaf Culture. This helps the student understand the complete picture of the Deaf world. This class is being offer during Winter 2020 on Thursday.
Note: ASL classes at OTA have a limit of TEN students so that each student can get enough time to sign during class.
NOTE: Registration deadline is August 26, 2019.
