Adult Sign Language

Online Adult Sign Language Beginners

American Sign Language (ASL) is a language used for centuries by people of all backgrounds and abilities. It is the fifth most-used language in the U.S. spoken by over 500,000 people. These classes will help adults to learn to express themselves visually, using their hands, eyes, face and body, and communicate with others in a meaningful way. We will learn the five parameters of American Sign Language, ASL handshape including ASL orientation, location and movement, and basic ASL vocabulary. We will also explore deaf culture and develop an awareness to this community of non-hearing people.   This class is designed for adult learners 18 and older.

Dates: Thursdays, October 8 - November 12, 2020 | 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. (CST)
