American Sign Language: Level 1

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This is a beginner's course in the system of American Sign Language (ASL), a form of communication used by thousands of deaf Americans and Canadians. ASL is an expressive, versatile, full-fledged language and not a hodgepodge of charades and hand movements. It has its own grammar, poetry, and puns. Students learn the techniques essential to basic ASL conversations, including finger spelling and facial expressions, through demonstrations and class activities, including interactive exercises and role-playing. They become familiar with the history of deaf society in the United States. This course is led by a deaf native signer. There is no prerequisite for this course.
