If you’ve already completed our introductory course in American Sign Language, then this is the next step in your ASL education. This ASL Level 2 course is designed to continue your skill development in expressive signing.
Building on previous knowledge of the ASL alphabet, facial expression, body language, syntax, and basic vocabulary, you’ll evolve your conversational fluency to tackle more sophisticated topics and sentence structure.
Included in the course are vocabulary lessons, grammatical principles, and cultural concepts that students need to know to carry conversations in ASL at work, school, and a variety of social settings.
The focus of this course is to prepare students for non-verbal interaction and communication with members of the deaf community, or in real world scenarios.
You’ll learn useful vocabulary for ordering meals and asking directions, for example, and you’ll be able to hold meaningful conversations about various topics. But it’s not all serious you’ll also learn how to tell jokes, use common expressions and sayings, and relay anecdotes to your audience.
We’ll also focus on teaching you more about the deaf community, so you gain a better appreciation for deaf culture, activism, and learn how you can get involved.
