Learn basic signing skills to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing.

American Sign Language 2 expands on skills and knowledge from ASL 1.  Students will expand their vocabulary and signing techniques using the manual alphabet, numbers, and short phrases.  Students will practice dialogs and will demonstrate comprehension skills through the application of conversations, storytelling, and interpreting.  Students will learn about interpreting as a career and national test taking procedures.  Projects are assigned outside the formal classroom setting to provide practice opportunities and to develop proficiency in a real world setting.
