Beginner ASL with Valerie Bianchini
Fridays 4:00 – 5:30 pm ET Summer C
This 10 week session is for students who want to study an overview of American Sign Language (ASL) including its basic vocabulary, structure, syntax and grammar. Students will focus on mastering the basics of fingerspelling, numbers, colors, facial grammar and sentence structure; students will also learn conversational/cultural behaviors necessary to hold a beginning-level conversation in ASL. Introductory information about deaf culture will also be presented, along with deaf humor, to provide students with a broad picture of language and culture.
