INTRO TO AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE (ASL) with Valerie Bianchini
Thursday 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM
Intro to ASL is the first in a series of courses designed to develop the skills and knowledge needed to communicate in American Sign Language. As an introductory level course students establish a novice range of communication skills. By the end of the 10 week session, students should be able to demonstrate basic signing, including the alphabet, basic salutations, common expressions and basic conversation skills. This course emphasizes the cultural practices distinct to those that approach the world from a visual perspective.
