    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this American Sign Language course with Professor Kane was great! He is deaf, himself. I couldn't believe how easy it was to learn sign language when the professor never actually spoke to us once. He explained everything just by showing us. We had assignments to go to deaf events in the area and to write papers on them. I loved it. It was so interesting going to these events and experiencing something I never had before. I highly recommend Professor Kane. Definitely take him if you get the chance!

    Course highlights:

    This class was an introduction to American Sign Language. I learned all of the basic signs for getting by, just as you would in an introduction to any different language. Going to deaf events I learned about how deaf people live and communicate. I was really interested in learning about listening to music as a deaf person. They feel the vibrations of the music. It was really cool.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go to each and every class if you want to pass. You must pay attention and actually want to learn this subject. He is a very kind professor. The homework is reasonable and he will always help you if you have any questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend the course because it gives you a chance to see a community that we as a "hearing" community don't normally encounter. The course opens your eyes to something great. You are required to attend events which helps you see how this community comes together and does the same things we do.

    Course highlights:

    One of the requirements for this course was that we had to attend 3 events. My favorite event was a meet-up at Dave and Busters. It was great seeing this community which looked more like a giant family have a great time watching the game and exchange conversation with us. I saw deaf parents with hearing kids having a wonderful time. They also took the time to enlighten us on a little bit of their life. They took their time using sign language with us. I learned that we as humans should be more open to one another and live more as a community.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to make friends in the classroom. Be prepared to lean on one another, because trust me when I say that your classroom becomes your own mini community. Part of the requirement for the course is not allowed to talk in the classroom. They feel making the experience real helps you learn, which I believe is 100% correct.
