About This Class

c365225d

IN THIS COURSE, we’re going to learn how to sign sentences like “HE SEES FIVE SHEEP” and “TWO BEARS SMELL US” in American Sign Language (ASL). To do this, we need to learn pronouns, numbers, animal signs, verbs. We’ll learn in parts and put the parts together to create complete sentences. Then, I’ll test you to see if you’re able to 1) sign correctly and 2) understand what is signed.

*** This course is designed for complete beginners without any prior knowledge of ASL. No previous ASL skills or experience are necessary.

IN THIS COURSE:

  • Students will learn how to sign the following vocabulary words: ANIMAL, BEAR, BIRD, CAT, COW, DEER, DOG, DOLPHIN, DONKEY, EAGLE, ELEPHANT, FISH, FOX, HORSE, LION, MONKEY, MOUSE, PIG, RABBIT, SHARK, SHEEP, SNAKE, TURTLE, and WOLF.
  • Students will learn how to sign and recognize the numbers ZERO to TEN in ASL.
  • Students will learn how to sign the personal pronouns: I/ME, YOU, HE/SHE/IT, HIM/HER/IT, WE/US, THEY/THEM, and YOU (plural).
  • Students will learn how to sign the following verbs in ASL: HEAR, SEE, and SMELL.
  • Students will learn how to create combinations using the PRONOUNS, NUMBERS, ANIMALS, and VERBS to sign complete sentences.
  • Each individual sign will be taught step by step to ensure correct hand position and hand shape.
  • Students will be tested on their ability to sign and recognize ALL material taught in the course including full sentences.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

  • Hello! My name is Michael. When I was three years old, my younger brother became sick with spinal meningitis. In the process, my brother became deaf with an almost complete hearing loss. This difficult situation provided a unique opportunity for my family and I to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). Unlike some deaf children, my brother was not sent away to a deaf or hard of hearing school. He grew up with us, his hearing family, and we were active in the deaf community.
  • As a police officer and federal investigator, I often used ASL to communicate with and interpret for witnesses, victims, and perpetrators. I decided to create ASL courses because it’s a useful and practical skill to have. Like learning any language, it opens your mind and creates the ability to communicate with a whole new group of people.
