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

Below, please find a description of our typical 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, February 27, 2020, to May 14, 2020
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Location: Multipurpose Room at the Health & Wellness Center
Cost: $100
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.
