Sign Language One-Week Summer Intensive – Beginner 1

Our Summer Intensives in American Sign Language (ASL) are immersive courses that condense our 8-week sign language courses into an accelerated five days.

Re-imagined for online delivery, our ASL courses improve your signing skills in a virtual classroom taught by native signers experienced in teaching adults.

Learn how to introduce yourself and discuss leisure activities using beginner-level grammar and vocabulary. By the end of the first week, you should be able to engage in simple conversations. See the course outline which covers units 1 and 2 of Signing Naturally.

About Online Learning
Our online conversational language classes offer you a real-time virtual classroom where you can see and interact with your teacher and classmates. Each day, you login at a set time to your virtual classroom using our easy-to-use learning management platform, Canvas. Just like in a classroom, you do individual, pair and group work, ask questions and receive verbal feedback from your instructor. Outside of class, you can access handouts and other materials online at your own pace and rhythm. Expect a similar schedule to your face-to-face experience – minus the commute.
