Class description


Interpreter Prep

To qualify for this class, each student must interview with the instructor to assess skills and vocabulary.
Using Videos with Live interaction, students develop voice-to-ASL and ASL-to-voice skills.
Fluency in ASL is only one of several competencies needed to effectively interpret. Interpreters must also know how to assess the communication preferences or language level of the deaf individual and then adapt their interpretation to meet these needs. They must understand the meanings and intentions expressed in one language and express those meanings and intentions in the other language. Interpreters must be able to retain information and manage the flow of the communication, most often in real time (simultaneously).

This class is not for perfectly adept students, it is for students wanting to move their own skills forward, with the involvement and encouragement of others.  We will meet 14 times throughout the Semester

What Will I Learn?

  • My goal is teaching Sign Language is that students will gain enough knowledge and skill to share the gospel with someone who is Deaf. I want to move them on to meeting and building relationships with Deaf folks in their own community. Being comfortable with their communication ability to then grown further and learn not only ASL, but the history, and culture of Deaf in the US and abroad. Less than 4% of Deaf people in the US have been told the redeeming good news of Jesus Christ. Globally, that number is less than 1%. Christians MUST be more proactive in learning Sign Language and sharing the Gospel. That is what these courses are all about. We have a great time meeting new friends and learning a new language, but the sole purpose is to spread the Gospel of Jesus.

About the instructors

Hi. I'm Carroll Sue, and I love hearing about how someone made their dream come true. Success stories are my fuel. When I meet someone who doesn't know how to reach their own goals or even what those goals could be, I like to work with him or her to develop a path to Success. My husband, Philip, and I homeschooled and graduated our children, as well as others through the years. We have taught kids with no learning challenges, as well as kids with severe Dyslexia, Autism, and Developmental Delays. I teach two different course paths here: Sign Language and Business. Sign Language is my Life-Long-Love. I took my first Sign class when I was 6 years old, and just kept learning more and more each year. I started teaching Sign when I was 17, and have taught it ever since. I was an interpreter for many years, serving in different churches, the community, schools and for various conferences and concerts. American Sign Language is its own language and is considered a Foreign Language for those whose first language is spoken. In my classes, I teach conversational Sign, as well as History of Deaf Culture in America and around the world; the significance of ASL in modern society; the work of Deaf Pastors and Missionaries, those who minister in Deaf communities, and how we may also get involved in sharing the Gospel to those who are deaf and hard of hearing (did you know that less than 1% of Deaf people world-wide have been taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ?). I teach Introduction, Intermediate and Preparing to Interpret. My Business Stuff... I have my Master's degree in Human Resource Management, with a concentration in Career Development. I have taught at Montreat College, near Asheville, NC, for more than 20 years. My favorite courses to teach are Entrepreneurship, Management and Servant Leadership (where we study the Leadership of Christ). I also have a Business called Launched.Life where I work with individuals to create their own Career and Academic Maps, and with Entrepreneurs to develop Business Plans so they can start their own business. I teach three Business courses here: Career Launch (Middle School Explorers and High School Travelers), Business Launch (for budding Entrepreneurs), and Lead like Jesus. Hope we get a chance to learn together soon. ~Carroll Sue
