About This Activity

Description

Have you ever wanted to learn American Sign Language (ASL)? Learn a different way of communicating? Join our ASL class in a fun and safe environment taught by Jenny Witteborg, a Deaf Instructor. Discover how to be more aware of what people want out of a conversation, understand non-verbal cues or facial expressions.
This program is a series of four (4) classes developed to enrich your expressive and receptive skills in ASL while learning tidbits about Deaf Culture. No prior experience is necessary. Your journey in mastering ASL may take a lifetime, and you’ll meet cool folks along the way who are either deaf/hard of hearing or are people who just want to learn a new language.
Create a group (family, friends, work buddies) to attend the same sessions, and practice together! If you use it, you’ll learn. If you don’t use it, you’ll ‘lose it’. Open to all ages 10+ (ANY AGE for a family, friend, or buddy with a deaf/hard of hearing member).

*ASL was declared to be a full language in 1960s based on the work of Dorothy Casterline and Carl Croneberg and William Stokoe in 1960s. Casterline who recently passed away was the first Deaf Hawaiian Native to enter Gallaudet University BEFORE Hawaii became USA’s 50th and last State. Carl Croneberg was from Sweden.
*Classes are tailored to each session's group; feel free to take multiple sessions/months and build, practice your skills. Some of the summer season classes meet on a certain schedule; please make sure to make note of the dates that are NOT on those particular schedules.
