CCV Offers Sign Language Courses

Community College of Vermont is currently offering Sign Language Studies courses in Montpelier, Winooski, and St. Albans for the Fall 2015 and upcoming 2016 semesters.  According to the course catalog, Sign Language I “teaches elementary communication with the Deaf and hard of hearing and emphasizes basic aspects of American Sign Language.  Attention is given to issues and concerns of the Deaf and hard-of-hearing communities.”  The introductory course is a prerequisite for Sign Language II, which “builds on students’ basic knowledge of American Sign Language. Emphasis is on improving clarity, speed, fluency, and increasing expressive and receptive proficiency.” For more information, go to CCV’s website.
