ASL 1210 - American Sign Language IV

This course is a continuation of ASL 1130 and the first American Sign Language course within the Sign Language Interpretation Program. The course will emphasize advanced level sign vocabulary, compound complex grammatical constructions, and idiomatic usage of American Sign Language. Emphasis on the development of conversational fluency with the student being able to discourse freely and naturally with ASL users in both receptive and expressive aspects of the language will be the focus of this course.
