Signs from Heathens: Practice for Beginners Date & Time 12/09/2021 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Categories Imported True Meetup Id zwspqsyccqbmb Venue Name Online event Venue City State Zip , Meetup Link Meetup Link Description Join us as we learn to form sentences from signs we know, and a few new ones! Come to class and share a sentence or two if you like. Participation is not mandatory. All levels welcomed. This will be a short 1 hour practice session to use the knowledge we have gained in the ASL Study Group to practice conversation. NOTE: We are all ASL beginners and learning together. Classes and discussions are lead by hearing people and will be a combination of spoken and signed communication. We are not yet at the level of ASL only discussions. 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. Learning is fun!
