    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dawn is a great professor she will work one on one with you to make sure you are achieving your goals connected to receptive and productive skills in ASL. She will challenge you to become the best you can be in respect to your goals and what you want to achieve from the language .

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about visual language and how much dependence I had on hearing things. I also learned a lot of vocabulary and the foundations to building my ASL skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for this to be a challenge. But practice makes perfect and that's something that most people fail to understand in respect to language acquisition. You need to immerse yourself into the culture, community and language to become fluent and gain fluency. This takes time so don't get down on yourself if you see yourself moving slowly. We were all where you have been and that's the beautiful thing

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Although I took three years of Sign Language in high school, this is a great introductory course.

    Course highlights:

    We learned tons of signs and how to fingerspell. Tons of students who take this class have enjoyed it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you practice, because if you don't the signs won't stick in your brain and you'll forget everything you've learned.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course introduced me to a different way of thinking while simultaneously making me discover a new passion for sign language. The professor was very informative, eager to work with others, and extremely helpful in offering tips and the basics of the language in the deaf community.

    Course highlights:

    We as a class learned the basics of American Sign Language, including fingerspelling, basic vocabulary, and basic sentence structure for a signed dialogue.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course may have been pretty easy overall, but it is not a course to be taken for granted; it is a course that many take solely for the credit, but attend class with an open mind. You may find this class really interesting and perhaps find the passion for signing as well.
