American Sign Language

Welcome to American Sign Language at Clatsop Community College!
ASL instruction at Clatsop Community College facilitates students in developing  language proficiency and cultural understanding of the deaf
community.  Instruction also motivates students to continue with advanced ASL studies at universities and to use the language in the community.

  • ASL 101: AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE I

Students learn basic ASL vocabulary, grammatical structures and conversational behaviors. Students are introduced to cultural values, beliefs, and behavioral norms shared by those within the deaf community. This course focuses in the language widely used by deaf Americans.

  • ASL 102: AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE II

Students improve their skills in vocabulary, grammatical structures and conversational behavior. Special focus will be given to developing more awareness of the cultural values and beliefs shared by the deaf community.

  • ASL 103: AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE III

Students continue to increase their skills in vocabulary, grammatical structures and in-depth cultural awareness. Cultural information centers upon the ways in which hearing people can work with deaf people to establish culturally appropriate relationships.

  • ASL 201: AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE-CONVERSATIONAL SKILLS

Students improve and maintain their conversational ASL skills. Students will learn additional sign vocabulary, grammar concepts, and further develop conversational skills. In addition, ASL idiomatic signs will be presented. Students may also work on projects such as poems, songs, and choral works.
