ASL Week is an intensive program in American Sign Language (ASL) for adults interested in improving their ASL skills. ASL week offers four different levels of instruction: Beginner*, Intermediate I, Intermediate II, and Advanced. Upon arrival, instructors will evaluate participants in order to place them at their appropriate level. Please come prepared to remain silent from Sunday to Friday, using American Sign Language to communicate in classes and at meals. Topics include ASL vocabulary, receptive and expressive skills, fingerspelling, use of classifiers, referencing, verbs, and insights on linguistics and Deaf culture. Breaks for swimming, sailing, hiking, evening sign games and skits round out the five hours of class time per day. If you would like to request a roommate for the week, please do that on the registration form.
*It is highly recommended for beginning level students to have already completed a basic ASL course.
