Students will learn the parameters of ASL, such as handshapes, spatial relationships, two-handed vs. one handed signs, palm orientation, facial grammar, non-manual markers, speed and intensity of signs and how it affects meaning.
Students will experience aspects of Deaf Culture, such as having a name sign, hand-waving to call attention, where it is appropriate and how to tap a deaf person to establish eye contact for face-to- face communication.
This introductory course will clear up myths and misconceptions many people have toward ASL and Deaf people. In just 5 weeks.
