We recommend all students start out by participating in Level One, regardless of whether they know some sign language or not. This is because Level One establishes the necessary foundation for all the classes offered at DCI. And you do not need to know any American Sign Language before attending our classes.
For more information about each level, please see the below chart:
|LEVEL 1||$95 per term||5 Weeks||ASL Book $40|
|LEVEL 2||$95 per term||5 Weeks||No Cost|
** Please note that ASL classes offered by DCI are designed only to acquaint the student with Deaf Culture and to provide the basic ability to communicate with Deaf people using ASL. These classes are not designed for students pursuing certification as a sign language interpreter, although people considering a career as an ASL interpreter might wish to enroll in a DCI class as a first step to determine their level of interest in such a career. For information on becoming an ASL interpreter please refer to www.idhhc.illinois.gov or www.ilrid.org
