Both the supply fee and enrollment fee ($50) are non-refundable and will hold your place in the class. The $100 balance will be due by the first class. This is the same for second semester as well.

Course Description: Having completed ASL 1 using the Master ASL! book, we will continue on and finish the book. Class will consist of more use of classifiers, story telling, and more abstract ideas while still learning more vocabulary. Class will have more time to chat and practice signing and answering with peers. We will go deeper into the language and culture. Participation is essential, along with quarterly papers/projects on Deaf culture topics. Second year students will add on glossing to their ASL skill set. I am suggesting that you purchase a book this year, although the price has increased, so it is best to find it used. You are able to share within a family, or you can go online and find the pdfs, but it is not nearly as helpful for the in class portion unless it is printed. I will still offer a binder for those students who need it. You must let me know after registration if you want a binder or will be purchasing the book. Here are some links to purchase it if you desire.
