Beginning Sign Language
American Sign Language (ASL) is a complete, complex language that employs signs made by moving the hands combined with facial expressions and postures of the body. It is the primary language of many North Americans who are deaf and is one of several communication options used by people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
By the end of this “art” class, you will know how to Sign the present, past and future tenses, how to ask questions, express and read basic and emergency needs, talk about family, food and fun as well as use action Signs which tie together whole “pictures” of visual communication.
NOTE: Requiring that students at least give the ASL alphabet a shot before entering the class. I can help you with it if you want a bit of time before class starts.
