American Sign Language 1a: Introduction will introduce you to vocabulary and simple sentences, so that you can start communicating right away. Importantly, you will explore Deaf culture – social beliefs, traditions, history, values and communities influenced by deafness.General NoteSign order should not be the focus of this course. While students should make an effort to put things into ASL sign order when appropriate, grading should not be based on this. Please also be aware that while you may learn particular signs one way, it’s possible others may learn the same signs in a slightly different manner. As in any language, there are many variances between signs and signers, as well as regional and cultural differences. Signs may also be shortened or simplified for the ease of conversation.
