    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. I took this course as my cultural understanding course. My professor was awesome. He's third generation deaf but he still made the class very fun for us even though there was a barrier between us.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was how he thought it. He would give us vocab every class. Once we learned the vocab then he would start telling us stories. There is a lot of participation required and there is ABSOLUTELY NO TALKING. I really learned what it was like for people who are deaf. Since we were required to sign and not speak it shows how hard it can be for them to communicate with people who are hearing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the videos that come with the book. Practice, practice, practice. My professor always encouraged us to go to the ASL Lab, Lunch and Deaf events. The more you practice the easier it will be to remember the signs. The test and quiz are straightforward. It all about knowing what your signs are and sentence structure for ASL.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in learning a second language. I am only on my second semester of ASL and have already been able to use what I have learned countless times in real world situations, like at work and/or at the super market. ASL and Deaf culture are extremely interesting and rewarding to learn more about.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained many conversation skills from ASL and learned an immense amount about Deaf culture and the Deaf community. ASL wasn't too hard to pick up on, with lots of a practice and some homework of course. Once I got the alphabet down and finger spelling, I felt much more confident with the whole course and all of the new things I was learning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give would be to constantly practice finger spelling. When you mess something up or someone/the instructor corrects you, don't feel bad because they just want to help make you better and make learning easier. I would also say keeping up on your homework will always help keep everything fresh in your head and make learning new things easier.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Broaden your horizons as you explore Deaf culture and learn a new form of communication.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights include: - Historical figures within the Deaf community - Basic Vocabulary including words for questions, spatial representation, living situations, etc. - Cultural "do's" and "don't's" when interacting with a person who is Deaf

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the homework and don't miss class if you can help it. This is a very easy elective if you show up, however, when you miss class meetings I am sure it can't be easy to catch up.
