About

This ASL Level 2 course is designed to continue your skill development in expressive signing.

The focus of this course is to prepare students for non-verbal interaction and communication with members of the deaf community, or in real world scenarios.

You’ll learn useful vocabulary and you’ll be able to hold meaningful conversations about various topics. But it’s not all serious – you’ll also learn how to tell jokes, use common expressions and sayings, and relay anecdotes to your audience.

We’ll also focus on teaching you more about the deaf community, so you gain a better appreciation for deaf culture, activism, and learn how you can get involved.

    International Open Academy courses are designed for anyone with an interest in learning. No formal qualifications are required to study with us. Our courses are suitable if you want to learn new skills, start a new career, or if you’re already working in a particular industry and wish to upgrade your talents and enhance your resume.
