In the first of two, instructor-led, asynchronous courses, you will be introduced to sign language in a very hands-on, pragmatic way. In the first course you’ll learn language functions/features of mastering the ASL grammar at a basic expressive and receptive level for functional communication purposes. An introduction to cultural and historical aspects of ASL and the Deaf Community is also included. This is a great course for someone that has no previous experience or knowledge with sign language. This course starts January 10th and runs until March 4th.
