Enjoy exploring ASL! Learn the basics of American Sign Language (ASL) in this relaxed and comfortable 8-week class.

ASL is the language used by most Deaf Canadians. It is a visual language made up of specific gestures (signs), hand shapes and facial expressions. It uses unique grammatical rules and sentence structure. Instructor Carl Brown will introduce you to the basics of everyday communication, such as exchanging information, identifying/describing others, and asking for clarification.

No materials required.
