Sign Language (ASL)  – Beginners

Students will learn to appreciate and respect ASL as a living, unique and wholly naturally-occurring language, and recognize deaf people as a community with its own set of cultural traditions and values. Students will become familiar with deaf culture, history, folklore, community, and sub-communities such as the Deaf-Blind community in Greensboro. To appreciate and respect deaf culture, students must understand the signed language. Students will learn appropriate cultural behaviors such as directing and maintaining attention, and a way of talking that keeps others informed. This course is appropriate for students who have no or minimal knowledge of sign language to the point where they can function comfortably in a wide variety of situations. Students learn how to use ASL to ask and answer questions, exchange personal information, discuss their jobs, discuss their families, discuss where they are from, and make appointments.
