Discover Sign Language will teach you how to sign basic phrases and complete sentences and how to put it all together, allowing you to introduce yourself and start a conversation. Along the way, you will learn signs for colors, numbers, locations, family, and the activities you like to do.

Discover Sign Language II will teach you how build phrases and sentences with vocabulary learned in Discover Sign Language 1, as well as learning new vocabulary. You will practice phrases and sentences by recording your own signing and uploading it for the instructor and classmates to review. You will also continue to explore Deaf culture by learning about the history of Deaf culture in the United States and technological implications on the modern-day Deaf community.
