This course is the first of a two-part advanced ASL sequence, moving students beyond the language requirements of ASL 101, 102, 201 and 202 by continuing to develop conversational fluency at a beginning advanced level. The focus is on interactive experiences with language structures, functions and vocabulary necessary for building narrative and conversational skills that enable efficient communication in ASL and deaf cultural contexts. Particular attention is given to development of visualization skills necessary for effective use of a visual-gestural language. The course also aims to expand students’ range of cultural and personal topics of discussion and to use the target language in meaningful and creative ways.
Course fee: $85.
