    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor really cares about whether or not you understand what he is teaching. He makes sure before we move on to the next subject that you have grasped the material.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to have a conversation with my deaf neighbor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it for sure because it makes any resume look better. By the end of the first semester you will be fluent in ASL.

    6-8 hours

    Do the practice, do the assignments and you'll do great!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Rachael Quass is very knowledgeable in ASL, and makes learning a new language fun and exciting. It was a little overwhelming at first, but worth it in the end.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to communicate with a deaf person at the end of this course made all the hard work worth it. Rachael Quass gives in depth insight into a whole other culture and helps students understand the language better.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice Practice Practice! Learning a new language is not easy. But it is fun and rewarding once you learn. It was amazing going into this class and knowing pretty much nothing, and coming out and being able to hold a conversation. Find a study group from the class, and practice with each other. Or record yourself signing and watch it later. You will see mistakes and be able to fix it.
