    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because as an instructor Jodi presents the information in a clear way that allows us as the students to understand and she makes sure that we have a firm handle on the new signs and material we have learned before moving on, as ASL is a course that builds on previous knowledge. It is a very enjoyable, low stress class that really allows you to get to know the American Sign Language.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are that I am able to converse with people of another language. How cool is that? Before I just knew the English language but after taking just one course of ASL I am able to understand the basis of Sign and talk with hard of hearing or deaf people that use this as their main form of communication.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students considering this course is to think of the end goal. After taking this class and really paying attention to the new signs and Deaf culture taught to you, you are able to understand another language and communicate with others who use this language. You will be more marketable in the job field because you will be able to work with customers or clients that are deaf or hard of hearing. Even in your everyday life if a family member, friend or just someone you come across is deaf or hard of hearing you will be able to converse with them and you would not have been able to do that before taking this class and learning ASL.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class! It's absolutely vital.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this coarse if you are the kind of person who needs to take a lot of notes. I would recommend this class to those who are able to understand that ASL is a physical language.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights is the professor works hard to keep you engaged throughout the course. It is VERY repetitious. What I learned is that not all deaf people are born from deaf parents.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time, ask questions, the professor is usually willing to repeat a sign multiple times if that is what it takes for you get it. you make want to make flashcards. (this course at the time I took it did not have that option built into the course.
