    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class goes at a fast speed, but the teachers also will sit down with you and help you understand everything. What is best about all of that is that the teachers are actually deaf so you get to understand the perspective of Deaf culture from their eyes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to be open to different ways of signing and to have more of an open mind.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open to practice. practice is what makes perfect with this.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very informative and helpful course in my goals of learning sign language. However, the professor was difficult to get in touch with and did not follow the syllabus very well, which was frustrating. I would definitely recommend Sign Language classes, but not my professor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this class. I went in knowing no sign language at all, and by the end I could communicate in complete sentences about a variety of topics, including food, directions, pets, people and more. The sign language lab was very helpful for gaining practical skills and in sentence formation (it is very different from English!). By the end of the course I felt mostly confident in signing to a deaf person and I felt I could communicate adequately given the time I put into the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to go to the ASL lab as often as possible, and to review the vocabulary videos provided on the ACC ASL website. They make it a lot easier to learn vocab (as note taking is difficult for signs) and are a good way to practice forming signs. Form study groups with your classmates and try to integrate yourself into the d/Deaf community if at all possible.
