|Please read this FAQ page carefully before contacting the Co-op.|
|Will there be updates to the ASL course?
Like all languages, ASL evolves and changes but also like all languages the basics and original groundwork do not change. We have tried to use the most commonly known signs that a Deaf person should know or at least to recognize within its context. Since this program is more for hearing students who want to learn the basics of ASL, we feel that the method we have here is the best way for a full comprehension of the evolving language.
