Welcome to ASL 1!
I’m so glad you’ve chosen ASL 1 and am looking forward to a wonderful year with all of you! Your presence in this class indicates a willingness to learn a new language. ASL will challenge how you think about language and how it works. It is different than the spoken English we use every day. We'll have a blast and also get to meet our Deaf friends!
This year you'll learn basic ASL communication skills, fingerspelling, numbers, vocabulary, sentence structure, conversational skills, receptive skils, Deaf history, and Deaf culture. Students are expected to follow the no-voice policy and use what they've learned to effectively communicate with this beautiful engaging language. Let's get signing and have some fun!
