I just registered for an American Sign Language class at the college today.. It starts next Tuesday at 5:30 pm. I'm excited about it, to tell you the truth. Sure, I learned some ASL in 8th grade and again in 10th, but it's still not enough! I'm still confused over the word placements and such. ASL is completely different from Signed English. ASL is based on the French language afterall.
ASL is more used among deaf people than signed english is anyway, so I might as well pick up on it. Especially since I'm considering going to CSUN hopefully for Spring semester next year (CSUN has the National Center on Deafness, which is why I want to go there).
I'm just really fascinated with ASL... ANd I do prefer ASL to Signed English, even though I don't use ASL fully cause I'm still stupid about some parts of it.
And the cool thing about this class is.. i KNOW the person who is going to be teaching... She's a pretty cool person. I can't wait for this to start!
$70 for this class... It goes on for 7 weeks, on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5:30 to 7:30, starting next Tuesday. Looking forward to it!
