Odyssey: Introductory American Sign Language

Students will learn to utilize American Sign Language (ASL) for receptive and expressive conversational skills. Topics include basic syntactical knowledge, manual alphabets, fingerspelling, and a basic vocabulary of 500 lexical signs, as well as learning about Deaf culture. Task-based activities will support effective communication around basic themes. The course is conducted in a silent classroom (no use of voice), based on nonverbal communication practice. Upon completion, students should be able to use ASL outside the classroom in limited contexts. Designed for students who have little or no previous knowledge of ASL.
