Learn essential ASL vocabulary and dig deeper into proper ASL grammar and the vibrancy of the Deaf community. This class dives further into shape, placement and movement of the hands, as well as facial expressions and body movements, all of which play important parts in conveying information. Lessons in this course will build on each other in a way that allows students to see immediate progress.
This course is designed for students with basic ASL knowledge or those seeking to improve on their technique and ASL grammar and broaden their vocabulary. It is especially helpful for those in health-related or educational fields, and will assist in communicating with the deaf, as well as those with autism, speech delays or other mental disabilities. You’ll learn from handouts, PowerPoints, group work, deaf individuals in the community and interactive activities.
The instructor is a licensed Sign Language Interpreter, past resident choreographer at Sign Design Theatre Company and vocal interpreter for New York Deaf Theatre. He has taught many language and Deaf culture classes across the states.
