CS100: Introduction to Cued American English - Self-Study
Get started right away with CS100 – Introduction to Cued American English – Self-Study. CS100 is comprised of 5 modules, including a comprehensive introduction, followed by 14 lessons that cover all of the handshapes and hand placements of Cued American English, as well as basic rules, or “Cue Tips”, which govern use of the system. Students are provided with plenty of opportunities to memorize and practice the system: In total, students have access to over 900 videos demonstrating how to cue a wide range of phonemes (sounds), syllables, words, and phrases. This guided practice enables students to memorize the entire system, fine-tune their form, and develop a good beginning level of fluency. Get started today! It generally takes 15-25 hours to initially complete the course, but a full year of access is included with purchase.
CS101: Introduction to Cued American English - Instructor-Led Course
Learn to cue in four weeks with the guidance of a Certified Instructor. CS101 is built on the same curriculum as CS100, but includes four weekly 1.5 hour Zoom sessions with an NCSA (National Cue Speech Association) Certified Instructor. You will progress through roughly 1/4 of the course material each week, following a special “Timed Agenda,” and will meet online with your instructor once per week for 4 weeks to review what you’ve learned, receive personalized feedback and instruction, and answer any questions you might have about the Cued Speech system. The course includes 3 Quizzes and a Course Evaluation, which must all be completed satisfactorily in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.
Class size is limited to 10 students or less — and multiple offerings of the course will be scheduled in order to match demand. At time of purchase, you will be asked to choose a specific offering. Each of the 4 weekly sessions will be recorded and may be downloaded and watched if you miss a session.
An alternative way to learn to cue with the assistance of a Certified Instructor is to purchase CS100 Self-Study and then to purchase a few (we recommend at least 3) Cue Tutor sessions, during which your Instructor can provide individualized instruction and guidance at key intervals during your progress through the self-study version of the course.
Cue Tutor connects individuals with certified instructors of Cued Speech through Zoom video teleconference software to work on expressive and receptive cueing skills.
