School Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm from Michigan. I plan on going back to school soon. I would like to make a career in ASL but like strictly focus on ASL and no other courses that does not relate to ASL. I come from a low income family, so I'm looking to just commute there back and forth. Anyone know any good recommendations?

If you are looking to become an ASL interpreter, you will need to have a bachelors in something.  The governing board for interpreters requires that you have a bachelors in order to sit for the exam.

I think that to be a teacher of the deaf you do not have to have a degree in deaf education, but you would need a teaching certificate.

    • Hey, 
      My name is Lex. I am American but settling down in Korea. For the tourism industry, I want to be able to provide ASl as well. Most HOH/Def students in Korea study ASL well so this would be the most universal sign language that I could learn. 

      I am a complete beginner. So looking to take tips from anyone. 

      Thank you. 
    • Hi everyone, my name is Lindsay, I'm 28 years old, and have CP (cerebral palsy). ASL has become the most useful tool in my life, to help me communicate with others around me, and in my community. I would like to learn more sign language to help me communicate with others in my life, to make new friends, and meet new people. I know the basic signs, and a little more.. I'm not able to verbally communicate due to my CP, so being able to learn more singing would be wonderful!!
    • This is the perfect place to post this!  In my experience, the ILY handshape version is more friendly and succinct, good for goodbyes to friends or lovers(works for groups too).  The  I, Love, You version is more emotive, and can be used more emphatically.  I would use it for emphasis or if you're trying to make a stronger point(body movement and facial expression are vital).  Hope this helps!
