ASL club sheds light on the expanding language | The News Record
American Sign Language (ASL) has spread amongst students at universities, encouraging more course offerings and the establishment of organizations to help improve their skills in the language.
The University of Cincinnati’s (UC) ASL club helps teach experienced and non-experienced students the basic concepts of sign language. Members start out learning fingerspelling, which is a fundamental skill of ASL. This helps them become familiar with the language mannerisms and feel more comfortable with learning. The club also incorporates interpreters to make sure they are teaching students what and how is the correct way to use certain signs. Whether students are learning for a language requirement or just for fun, this club acts as a beacon to create a comfortable and collaborative environment for students to learn and understand more about the language
