You should have taken one semester of ASL or ASL 041 before you take this course.


Students will learn how to create ASL sentence structures that can be used to form conversational sentences, over 200 new signs, and cultural insights into into the Deaf community. This course features interactive elements: live weekly review activities, live one-on-one signing appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. This is the second course in a four-part ASL series (ASL 041, 043, 051, 053) and is a continuation of ASL 041 (American Sign Language, Part 1).

Course Content:

Unit 1: Talking About Your Family
Unit 2: More About the Family
Unit 3: What the Family Does
Unit 4: Relations
Unit 5: A Deaf Family Member
Unit 6: Communicating in Signs and Other Ways
Unit 7: How to Communicate with a Deaf Person
Unit 8: More Signs from the Deaf Community
Unit 9: Talking About Transportation
Unit 10: Until Next Time


Students will need access to a computer with high speed Internet access, a microphone, speakers (or headphones), and a webcam. There are no resubmissions or retakes on instructor-graded assignments, unit quizzes or the final exam. On signing appointments, lowest score may be dropped. You must complete the signing appointment in each unit before you can move on to the next unit.
