American Sign Language – Level II


with Martin Samelson

Calendar Mar 7, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

ASL II will begin with a brief review of ASL I (basic sign language communication). ASL II is designed to raise your skill level and be a "user-friendly" place to practice the manual alphabet, finger-spelling, numbers, vocabulary (hand shape, location, movement), and familiar phrases used in brief conversations. Our goal is to build confidence for communication with Deaf and Hard of Hearing family, friends, co-workers and customers. Your growing awareness of Deaf culture will build understanding with a goal of bridging the communication gap between Deaf and hearing cultures. College students, serious and motivated high school students, "baby sign" users, and Late-Deafened adults are welcome. Some previous sign language experience is helpful. Join Martin Samelson, energetic ASL college professor and job coach for the Deaf, in learning how to communicate without voice. ASL is a visual language so no textbook is required.
