Take your sign language skills to the next level with additional vocabulary, grammar lessons, and cultural information. This course will help you build confidence in your ability to sign with the Deaf community.

You will practice phrases and sentences by recording your own signing and uploading them for review. Not only that, but you will also continue to explore the world of Deaf culture by learning more about the history of Deaf culture in the United States, famous Deaf individuals, and the impact of recent laws and technology on the modern-day Deaf community.
