    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class you don't only learn American Sign Language but you develop the skills you need to continue throughout the Interpreting program. The professor is deaf and that can present challenges along the way but if you stick it out it will be well worth the challenge!

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned basic signs and culture aspects of the deaf community that have definitely come in handy while out in the deaf community. I came to appreciate the language as a whole and the struggles the community has faced over time. The deaf community has been oppressed for centuries but a great man that you learn about in the class once said "A Deaf person can do anything a hearing person can do except hear" and I have found that to be extremely true. From this course I decided I wanted to pursue a career in Sign Language Interpreting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell future ASL students to persevere, stick with the language and you will definitely fall in love with the Deaf culture, community and the overall language!
