Perspectives' American Sign Language Classes are a fun, unique, way to learn a new language!
Since we've started teaching ASL nearly a decade ago, we have made modifications to our program
throughout the years to make learning ASL easy and fun. We have classes that range from beginner to advanced as well as workshops to hone in on skills necessary to become a skilled signer.
Our teachers are both hearing and deaf with the skills and knowledge to expose students to ASL in a natural, native approach. Classes are held "voice off" to get students actively signing in order to benefit receptive abilities and to advance their skills more quickly.
Join us in a safe, fun, supportive environment to become aware of Deaf Culture, the community and the language of the deaf.
Signing up is easy using our online form!
