Start to learn sign language! Communicate with more people. This course is at Emagister.co.uk
American sign language is a thriving language, separate from English, used throughout the U.S., Canada, Africa, and some other parts of the world. While no census has been undertaken to determine the exact number of ASL speakers, most studies show the number to range between 250,000 and 500,000 native ASL speakers, with some 2 million more having a grasp of the language as a secondary or third language. Learning ASL allows you to communicate with any of these people, in any situation.

Whatever you're seeking: self improvement and personal growth, working with the deaf community, or have friends or family members who are either deaf or are losing their hearing, learning American Sign Language, or ASL, can be immensely valuable to you.
Your vocal communication will also be improved In addition. Improving your skillset and learning a new language, you will learn how to use your body language and facial expressions to communicate, which can benefit you in every walk of life.

A great way to give back to your community is through learning sign language, by allowing you to communicate with deaf members of your neighbourhood. It also allows you to facilitate communication in multiple fields, and can be highly beneficial for teachers, persons working in customer service and sales, and for those working with children in any capacity.

Quali sono gli obiettivi della formazione?

This ASL course will walk you through the fundamentals of sign language with interactive video lessons to teach you how to begin communicating with the deaf community. You will learn the most important signs to get you started, fingerspelling, grammar, theory, and much more, so that when you complete this course, you will be able to ask questions, chat, and you will have a strong base for easily learning more signs. Because there are several thousand signs in ASL, this course is designed to give you a strong understanding of the fundamentals you need to communicate in ASL, rather than giving you a dictionary of every sign available. This will allow you to master what you need to begin communication, and then move on to increasing your vocabulary at your own pace.

The Basics – Learn the alphabet, numbers, fingerspelling, introductions, greetings, and names, so that you can introduce yourself, and get a conversation started.

Questions – Learn how to ask questions, how to phrase them, and how to ask about objects when you don't know the sign.

Work & Education – You will learn how to make appointments, ask the time, travel, use work titles, and much more.

Conversations – Learn how to talk about friends and family, how to use expressions to convey what you mean, how to ask questions and make statements, and how to describe actions and objects. This will allow you to have conversations about people, places, and things.

Theory – Master the fundamentals of grammar, structure, and rules to ensure that you have a good base for learning and speaking ASL.

Etiquette – You will walk away with an understanding of deaf etiquette, so that you can approach any situation as politely and appropriately as possible.

Il meglio: A great course overall. I am still studyimng for the ASL and I am really enjoying it. I did an ASL course before where the instructor who was deaf mainly showed us the alphabet and conversational movements. This course also deals with the history of ASL which is the background I never studied before and I wanted to know. Thanks!
