ASL 203 builds on skills learned in American Sign Language (ASL) 102, adding more complex ASL grammatical features and vocabulary, short stories, narratives, dialogues and elementary ASL literature. The course will include description of general surroundings, appropriate sequencing, temporal aspects, and conditionals. Students will increase fluency and accuracy in finger spelling and numbers. Information about the Deaf Community and Deaf Culture will be incorporated. Total language immersion is used to enhance the learning process. All classes will be conducted in the target language ( ASL) to further develop receptive and expressive skills- there will be NO use of spoken language allowed in the class room.
