American Sign Language & Linguistics

The course is exemplary in use of interactive modules designed to demonstrate the studying and analyzing of American Sign Language. There are approximately 35 million people who use American Sign Language in North America, including Canada. The interactive modules include video tutorials that allow students access to “close-up” parts of sign language and its meaning and how the language evolves over time since ASL began in 1817. Professor Fleese incorporates the video lectures using sign language with the audio.
