    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was such an important class to take so that I could communicate with other students on campus that are deaf. It was very interesting and beneficial for me.

    Course highlights:

    The class was interactive and fun. I learned to use my hands to communicate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend this class to everyone. It is the best language to learn because it is universal and everyone comes into contact sometime in their life with a person who cannot hear.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class! The professor went for a full immersion teaching style, never speaking in class, only using ASL. While I thought that would be overwhelming, she is very good at holding the attention of the whole class, explaining the sign she is using, and occasionally writing it out on the board.

    Course highlights:

    Sometimes (every other week or so) we would play ASL based games in class. ASL Bingo, The price is right, etc. They were a lot of fun and really got us to use ASL quickly, making us think on our feet.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to show up if you want to do well. ~90% of the learning comes from in class teaching. If you miss much you will fall far behind.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a fantastic introduction to American Sign Language and to Deaf culture. This class is fully immersive since Sericia is deaf. She is very animated and although there is not an interpreter throughout the class there are very few misunderstandings. She is very clear and is aware that most of the students have minimal knowledge of ASL and Deaf culture and she is extremely excited to teach you and loves that you want to learn about a new language and culture.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about Deaf culture because I never realized how different it was from hearing culture. All of the things that she teaches you is extremely relevant since we are on a campus with NTID, we interact with deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing students and faculty on a regular basis.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are videos that are posted with the vocabulary, since it is difficult to study the signs out of a book. I highly recommend watching these videos after class and especially before expressive and receptive exams. If you have any friends that are deaf or hard-of-hearing, or have taken an ASL course practice signing with them. The more you can practice the better.
