language studies

In ASL III, students will focus on broadening their vocabulary and conversation skills while using appropriate and accurate ASL grammar with emphases on the non-manual aspect of communication and classifier development. There is a continued study of deaf culture.

In ASL IV, students will continue the study of the grammar of ASL, the functional application of ASL, classifiers, locatives, and vocabulary. The course will include an introduction to ASL idioms, multiple-meaning words in both ASL and English, and conceptual/contextual signing. Students will also work with ASL literature in an in-depth study.

Students in both ASL III and ASL IV meet together for the first class and then develop meeting times for the rest of the quarter to support both courses.
