In Level 1, the topics that we will cover are: Introduction to Deaf Culture, fingerspelling, numbers, describing people, sharing information about your hobbies, pets, family, and ASL pronouns. You will also learn how to ask questions and have a conversational dialogue in ASL! About Hadel: Hadel was born and raised in Iraq and currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
