About this class:
If you’ve been looking to learn and practice sign language, this is the class for you! This class will introduce you to finger spelling, Deaf culture, and common signs that will help you communicate with both friends and strangers. Our interactive classes will feature guest speakers, games, and songs; we’ll also use breakout rooms to practice what you’ve learned with others at the same skill level.
Dates: Mondays, October 19 – December 21, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
