What we're about

http://photos2.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/5/d/6/0/600_433523904.jpeg

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT: Spreading American Sign Language throughout Southbay Los Angeles cities. We are based in Redondo Beach, CA but offer classes in Lomita, near Los Angeles, CA. We take part in other Deaf events in other Southbay Los Angeles cities including, Lawndale, Gardena, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach and other cities in the Los Angeles area.

All skill levels, deaf and hearing are welcome.

There are three simple mostly obvious rules for our group:

1)Everyone helps each other out to learn about American Sign Language and the Deaf community.

2)Everyone respects each other. No attitudes.

3)Have fun at our events!

Also when you join our group we need to see a real current picture of yourself that we can recognize and we need to see your real name (first name is fine). We want to be able to recognize you by your name and your face when you come our events.

This group is entirely what you make of it. The best way we know of to learn sign language is to practice, ideally with people that are fluent in the language. I've attend many sign language classes over the years, but really, I learned sign language and about the Deaf community by spending time with them.

You can practice with anyone you want in this group whenever you want. The power is entirely within you. Don't worry if you make mistakes, as everyone does. Learn from them and keep signing!

If you want to practice with others on a schedule that is more convenient to you you can become an event organizer for our group. It's easy. You just post events in our group whenever and wherever you want. You can post a beginners practice night, for example, at a coffee shop or elsewhere. You don't need to be an expert at sign language to do this. You just need to be a friendly responsible host. Contact me if you want to learn more.

Looking forward to signing with you!
