    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the professor is amazing and I believe that people should get more involved with the Deaf community and their language. It is important to try to understand a new form of communication as well because more opportunities will become available to you.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned the basic way of communicating with someone who is Deaf, hard of hearing, or with a communication/language disorder. A highlight was that my teacher was Deaf herself which allowed the class to have full insight on how a Deaf person lives their everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students considering this course to have a passion for this language and not solely an interest. This class will be a lot easier for students who actually are excited and determined to learn it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    American Sign Language is not a course that most people take, but it was overall a great experience. I managed to get an A in this course and it helped me come to the conclusion that I want to Minor in Deaf Studies.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I learn sign language, but I also learned a little about the Deaf community.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do it! I would recommend this class to anyone who is willing to take it.. This course also helps with social skills and forces you to see things through the eyes of someone in the Deaf community.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it gives everyone a totally different mind set about Deaf people and their culture and allows all students to learn so much of the language in such a short amount of time.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was interacting with my Deaf teacher, which only made me learn the language even better. The teacher was awesome, and she reviewed so much with us and was so patient.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review the vocabulary daily! Just by reviewing for a few minutes each day really helps ingrain the words and the signs into your brain.
