    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because Mikkel is an amazing teacher. He really makes sure you feel comfortable, if you ever have questions he is always quick to thoroughly answer it while showing you how to sign it. There are quite a few projects in his class, but they are super fun to do. The projects are videos you create of you signing, then you post those on BlackBoard. You learn a lot in this class, but it is a course I really enjoy going to. We learn new signs almost every day, and we sign to other people in the class every class.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained the ability to learn about deaf culture quite a bit. We have learned what is considered rude in the deaf community. We have learned so many signs, and how to sign phrases to people. Through this course you build peer relationships, such as if we see someone in our class rather than say hello we sign is to each other. Sometimes we will even just stop, and have a full conversation is sign language.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone who plans on taking this course is, teach someone you know about it. That is the best way I studied I used my dad along with my fiancée to study. I taught them the signs, and now we can have conversations. That is the best study technique for me due to this being a mainly hands on course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is amazing and always knows how to keep the class engaged. He himself is deaf therefore the environment is better to learn in.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so many new signs and lots of grammar. I sometimes feel as if I didn't learn that much, but when I speak to someone in ASL, I know so much more that I thought.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to pass this class and also learn for it, you need to show up for class every single day. Just missing one day of class can be tough because we learn so much from just one lesson. Also, practice, practice, practice!
