This advanced ASL course is specifically designed to refine expressive and receptive ASL skills. Advanced linguistic structures are reviewed and applied. Vocabulary building specific to areas in which interpreters find the greatest challenges such as medical, legal, computer technology, sports, religion, academics, business, rehabilitation and local terms is an important aspect of this course. Current events are discussed in ASL, giving students opportunities to apply their linguistic and cultural knowledge while participating in open discussions.
