American Sign Language 2-Communicating with the Deaf

ASL 2550

This course is a continuation of American Sign Language (ASL 1550).
Focus will be on conversational sign language. You will learn to talk about family and everyday activities; as well you will learn about ASL storytelling and get the opportunity to develop your own story in class. The course will cover units 4-6 in the Signing Naturally Level 1 Curriculum. Class includes a lab component weeks three to ten as indicated in the second line of the schedule. The textbook is required for the first class.


Due to the pandemic, this course will not be taught in-class at the Oshawa or Whitby campuses. Instead, the instructor will deliver the course online using Zoom or another platform during the normally-scheduled class time. Assignments and tests will be posted using our Desire2Learn Learning Management System (called DC Connect). Therefore, students will need a computer with a webcam, audio and reliable high-speed Internet connectivity to participate. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot predict at this time if/when we will resume in-class delivery for this course. Tuition included a $3 non-tax deductible fee.

No class on February 15
