American Sign Language (ASL): Level I

with Martin Samelson


Learn basic sign language communication, including the manual alphabet, fingerspelling, numbers, vocabulary, Deaf culture, and familiar phrases to enhance communication with Deaf and hard of hearing family, friends, co-workers, students, clients, and customers. Previous sign language experience, textbooks, and a dictionary are not required. Your instructor will supply all materials. Martin Samelson has taught ASL to college and high school students in private lessons, corporate programs, and job development with Deaf clients. ASL is a visual language, so no textbook is required. The instructor will supply all materials. Our IN-PERSON instruction will include Deaf culture, hand-shapes for the A-B-Cs and number systems, vocabulary and simple sentence structures. Each class will include time for you to practice and suggestions for at-home practice. We will NOT be using ZOOM for any portion of this class. *No class: 4/18.
