Welcome to American Sign Language (ASL)

Students will learn about the history of and perspectives on the language and the signing community in Canada with which thousands of Deaf and hearing people are associated. How this community is integrated as part of the macro-community of Canada is discussed. Information on socio-cultural values of this community is incorporated as part of this course.

Students will learn the linguistic fundamentals of ASL and learn to use it as their second language in appropriate socio-cultural context.
