Deaf Way Interpreting Services’ American Sign Language (ASL) classes engage the learner in both an academic and immersive learning environment.

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, all classes this Fall will be offered via remote learning using the Zoom platform. Registrants will receive instructions by email on how to access the classes.


Using the “A Basic Course in American Sign Language (Second Edition)” curriculum and taught by a Deaf person, our sign language classes ensure students receive top-notch sign language instruction.

Beginner American Sign Language Class
Date: Thursdays, from September 3, 2020 to November 19, 2020
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual (Zoom)
Cost: $125
More information: The Beginner American Sign Language Class teaches that ASL is a visual-gestural language with its own syntax and grammar. The instructor will seek to encourage students to think in signs instead of words. The instructor and students focus more on functions of everyday interactions that range from inviting someone to sit down to more abstract communication like starting a conversation or storytelling. An additional bonus to the non-verbal, conceptual approach is learning and understanding of Deaf culture.
