About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, November 1, 2022.

Are you interested in learning American Sign Language (ASL) in order to communicate with a friend, family member, or colleague who is deaf? If so, this course is for you! American Sign Language is a visual language, incorporating facial grammar, and made up of specific hand shapes and movements. It is the dominant language of the Deaf community, provides meaningful communication between hearing parents and deaf children, and brings people who happen to be hearing and deaf together. This beginner level ASL class will give you the opportunity to lean the manual alphabet, conversational signs, and develop communication skills. You will enjoy this fun and encouraging learning environment as you build your language skills in ASL!

This class is open to those who have taken it before and would like a refresher. You can repeat it as many times as you like. The book we will use for this class is The American Sign Language Phrase Book, by Barbara Bernstein Fant. If you have this book from a previous class, or prefer to get on your own, you can select that option upon registration.
The class fee includes all materials.
