American Sign Language

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been teaching American Sign Language for many years in a College setting and also through Adult Education. I have also taught Special Needs children who benefit greatly from learning to communicate using sign language. I have a wonderful curriculum that would get my students starting to communicate in sign language immediately. I can also teach signed english, but I do not recommend learning that until after learning ASL, which is the language of the Deaf. It has its own grammar and syntax.
