Do you work in a business that comes in contact with Deaf consumers or know someone who is Deaf? Enhance your communication with Deaf and Hard of Hearing family, friends, co-workers and customers and learn basic sign language communication, including the sign alphabet, finger-spelling, numbers, vocabulary (colors, animals, foods, etc.), and familiar phrases. Enjoy using vocabulary (hand shape, location, movement) and sentence structure. If interested, a ‘how-to’ lesson on teaching baby signs to pre-verbal children can be included. Late-Deafened adults are welcome as are motivated and serious high school seniors. No previous sign language experience is necessary. Join Martin Samelson, energetic ASL college professor and job coach for the Deaf, and learn how to communicate without voice by the end of your first class!

Calendar Oct 26, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

ASL II will begin with a brief review of ASL I (basic sign language communication). ASL II is designed to raise your skill level and be a "user-friendly" place to practice the manual alphabet, finger-spelling, numbers, vocabulary (hand shape, location, movement), and familiar phrases used in brief conversations. Our goal is to build confidence for communication with Deaf and Hard of Hearing family, friends, co-workers and customers. Your growing awareness of Deaf culture will build understanding with a goal of bridging the communication gap between Deaf and hearing cultures. College students, serious and motivated high school students, "baby sign" users, and Late-Deafened adults are welcome. Some previous sign language experience is helpful. Join Martin Samelson, energetic ASL college professor and job coach for the Deaf, in learning how to communicate without voice. ASL is a visual language so no textbook is required. No class on 11/23
