About the Course

This introductory ASL course will explore the foundational tools and concepts of this universal language.

Using the manual alphabet, fingerspelling, natural gestures, body language and eye contact will create a strong foundation for learning this unique and wonderful language.

We will build a vast signing vocabulary for practical everyday application through skits, roleplaying, and games.

Consistent practice and drills will encourage students,

with confidence to showcase their newfound skills.

This helps to "bridge the gap"

between the deaf and hearing community
