Taking courses in the standard packages works out best for most people. If you do this, you will avoid schedule conflicts and problems with prerequisites.
In addition the courses in each package cooperate with each other to avoid piling up tests and major assignments on the same day. These packages also make it easier for students to go on to take courses at other SIL schoolsif desired, particularly those in the U. To help you figure out which package is right for you, take a look at our page on Training Tracks for careers with SIL and similar organizations.

We teach a notational system called SignWriting which is very useful for research, since it includes symbols for virtually every gesture that is meaningful in any sign language, and also introduce other notational systems that are used for sign language research.
Introduction to the theory and practice of sign language phonetics. Intensive drill in recognition and production of a wide range of manual and non-manual phonetic elements that are used in natural signed languages, along with terminology for describing those elements precisely.
Practice in reading and writing one or more notational systems that are useful in recording phonetic details when conducting research on signed languages.

The core of the course is an intensive language practicum hoursworking with a native speaker of a language that is very different from languages the student already knows, in sessions led first by a teaching assistant and later by students.
