Frequently Asked Questions

How do the classes work?


ASL Classes are held via Zoom. Students will recieve the Zoom code in the confirmation email after registration. Each week, we work on introductions, review the signs from the previous week and learn the new signs for that week. For the ASL Levels 1, 2, 3, & 4 there is also designated time for practice with fellow students. Each week students learn between 30-50 new signs. There is homework which is designed as extra practice and is optional. In addition, students will have access to links to videos to practice along with for each week of vocabulary. For ASL Kids, we review the signs from the previous week and learn the new signs for that week. We designate a few minutes each week for students to practice with other sudents. In ASL Kids, students learn between 15-30 signs per week.
