American Sign Language I

$125

with Carrie Pierce

Calendar Oct 24, 2019 at 5 pm, runs for 8 weeks

NOTE: Date change from the brochure. American Sign Language is one of the most used languages in the U.S. It is a visual language with its own grammar, gestures, and syntax. American Sign Language can help you communicate better in a new way, using your eyes and hands. In addition, if you need to know ASL in order to communicate better with a friend, family member, client, student or employee, this is a perfect opportunity for you. This class is rigorous but fun, and you will come away with new knowledge about ASL and the deaf community. This class is not for children.

American Sign Language II

$125

with Carrie Pierce

Calendar Oct 24, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 8 weeks

NOTE: Date change from the brochure. This intermediate to advanced ASL course will build on the foundation of ASL 1 by adding vocabulary to increase conversation as well as grammar skills. We will look at the use of constrastive structure, how to ask questions, tell time and sign with numbers. Vocabulary topics will be based on class interest. We expect there will be opportunities for interaction with members of the deaf community. This course is taught without the use of voice but with the use of games and other activities as well as peer interaction. All students are required to have at least 12 hours of prior experience with a certified deaf instructor.
