American Sign Language Class

August 5 - September 9

$10

The objectives of this course are to provide participants with beginning ASL communication skills (including the alphabet, numbers, colors, finger-spelling, vocabulary and basic conversation). By the end of the 6 weeks participants will have developed the practical skills and knowledge necessary for basic interactions within the Deaf community.

Class description: This 6 week class is an introduction to American Sign Language, the language used by Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing people in the United States and most of Canada. This course will also provide introductory information on Deaf culture, since a language cannot be separated from its culture.
