Are you interested in learning American Sign Language (ASL) in order to communicate with a friend, family member, or colleague who is deaf? If so, this course is for you! American Sign Language is a visual language, incorporating facial grammar, and made up of specific hand shapes and movements. It is the dominant language of the Deaf community, provides meaningful communication between hearing parents and deaf children, and brings people who happen to be hearing and deaf together. This beginner level ASL class will give you the opportunity to lean the manual alphabet, conversational signs, and develop communication skills. You will enjoy this fun and encouraging learning environment as you build your language skills in ASL! Carol LaCava will be the instructor. She is Coordinator of Educational Interpreting at UTK and nationally certified interpreter through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). In addition to teaching ASL and interpreting courses, Carol is also co-founder of InterAct Children's Theatre for the Deaf.
The class fee includes all materials.
