Join us as we learn American Sign Language together! FINGERSPELLING We will be learning the alphabet and practicing fingerspelling. DESCRIPTIVE WORDS We will be reviewing adjectives and other descriptive words. NEW TO ASL No problem! Several of us are new beginners, we're learning together. WHY LEARN ASL Nearly 28 Million Americans have some form of hearing loss. Currently, a small percentage of those can only communicate via sign language, and are forced to stick within the deaf community. One great advantage of learning sign is expanding the social networking of those people, allowing them to further participate in society more easily. Other reasons to learn sign language: Become more expressive: Sign language is the key to create vivid and lasting imagery. Anyone who enjoys story telling, or making jokes can incorporate sign language to better captivate audiences. Pick up on body language: Given that sign language is a visual language, it's no surprise that you can also learn to better understand body language. Hold silent conversations with friends: Communicate in secret! Whether it be clubs, movie theaters or libraries, you don't need to whisper or yell to talk to your friends in sticky situations. Learning is fun!
