Learn the basics of Amer­i­can Sign Lan­guage (ASL) in this course designed for those with lit­tle or no back­ground in ASL. Acquire begin­ner-lev­el, prac­ti­cal ASL com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills on every­day top­ics, both to express your­self and under­stand con­ver­sa­tion­al Amer­i­can Sign Lan­guage. Under­stand the cru­cial com­po­nents of ASL and find out how to use non-man­u­al gram­mar in ASL. Explore issues relat­ed to Deaf cul­ture and the Deaf com­mu­ni­ty. This class will be entire­ly con­duct­ed in ASL.
Take note:

  • An ASL interpreter will be available for the first class to facilitate questions about the course. Subsequent classes will be taught in ASL exclusively. Further communication with the instructor will be through chat (during live sessions) and email (outside of class hours).

In synchronous online courses, students move through the course material at the same pace as their peers. These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details
