TOP REVIEWS FROM AMERICAN DEAF CULTURE
Amazing course on the American Deaf Culture and a lot of information to discover that I did not already know.
Loved learning more about (American) Deaf Culture, especially from someone who is informed and experienced. Thank you, professor, for the tips and knowledge!
Really liked the prof and learned a lot. It's made me interested in learning more. I wish it was a little more in-depth.
I am also a CODA, and I am so happy that a course on Deaf Culture is on CourseRA. Very proud of the collaborative efforts of exposing hearing people to the deaf community. ILY!
