American Sign Language

SBCC ASL Summer Immersion Weekend - July 19-21, 2019

American Deaf Culture and History

Program Description

American Sign Language, or ASL, is the dominant sign language of Deaf Americans, including Deaf communities in the United States and in some regions of Canada and Mexico. It contains phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax and pragmatics just like spoken languages. It is both a manual and a visual language; the information is encoded with the shape and movement of the hands and other parts of the body and also with facial expressions, including mouth morphemes.

The program offers a wide variety of courses, from beginning to advanced American Sign Language.
