Cultural Lesson in Introducing Oneself
It is important to know that Culturally the conversations are around who you know in the Deaf Community, and you and your communication partner’s connection with the Deaf Community. By Toni Lynn Van Bramer and Judy Moulton. Illustrations by Elaine Ernst Schneider and Mankit Chan.

English Language Program. Our most popular program. The Global Launch English language program provides an immersive, intensive English language learning environment for international students seeking to increase their language fluency and surround themselves in American culture. Offered on-campus and online. Babbel is the new way to learn a foreign language. The comprehensive learning system combines effective education methods with state-of-the-art technology. Interactive online courses will improve your grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation skills in no time. You'll make fast progress and have fun doing it. Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) is a sign language system that represents literal English. It is a tool to make visible everything that is not heard. Since American Sign Language (ASL) has different vocabulary, idioms, and syntax from English, SEE modifies and suppliments the vocabulary of ASL so children/students can see clearly what is said in. ASL - American Sign Language: free, self-study sign language lessons including an ASL dictionary, signing videos, a printable sign language alphabet chart (fingerspelling), Deaf Culture study materials, and resources to help you learn sign language.

Body Talk for Signers
A “good” signer/interpreter is one who is flexible, i.e. willing to try several means of conveying the message. Many signers would suggest using Total Communication, i.e. signing, mouthing, using facial expressions, gestures, and body movement – selecting the best combination to convey the message to an audience of mixed preferences and needs.
