As Evelyn Leonard is no longer hosting this meetup- this meet up now has
TWO Co-hosts JOEL (2nd THURS. ) & KEVIN (4th THURS) of each month
I am trying a new format for this meetup:
This format for the 2nd Thursday ONLY:
Each session should be divided into two groups. Each signer determines where they fit:
1st group: Fingerspelling & Flashcard and ASL books - in one group (beginning/novice signers)
2nd group: Intermediate-Advanced/conversational (no talking, sign only)
Each person determines what there level is. As you make the transition to the second group-- please respect my one rule and be committed to really practicing ASL without using your voice. signing only. The more you depend on your receptive skills, the more you will learn.
PLEASE INVITE YOUR DEAF FRIENDS, FAMILY and COLLEAGUES TO JOIN US!
JOEL and KEVIN
