Introduction to American Sign Language


Leah Woodward

Section 1: Grades 4-7, Sat, Sun: 5PM-5:45PM EDT

This course is great for beginners of all ages! Best for those with very little experience with ASL, as we will learn the basics of deaf culture, as well as the alphabet and numbers, and simple conversation signs. This course will be targeted to each student's learning style and interests. ASL is a very visual and hands-on language, so the course is very interactive and exciting. No prerequisites needed; come ready to learn!
