Sign Language Class


Beginning Sign Language - Level 1 Part 2
February 28, 2018 to April 11, 2018
Each Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 

This course is designed to follow Beginning Level 1 Part 1 and build on the student's basic working knowledge of American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf Culture. In this class, the second half of the Level 1 book is covered. Students have an opportunity to expand on the knowledge base that was obtained in Beginning Level 1 Part 1 by continuing to widen their vocabulary and strengthen their understanding of the grammatical structure of ASL. This workshop is a prerequisite for the Intermediate Level 2 Part 1 course.

Sign Language
March 8, 2018 to April 19, 2018
Each Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This course is designed for students of all levels in learning American Sign Language (ASL). Understanding Deaf Culture is part of the learning in this course. In this interactive class, students learn and enhance their vocabulary as well as deepening their understanding of grammatical structure in ASL. Lessons and activities focus on opportunities that help with practice and enhance learning. The teacher provides all course-related materials, so no book is needed for this course.

Conversational Spanish
March 7, 2018 to April 11, 2018
Each Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.

This non-credit class will be taught by Dr. Susan Nusbaum, a former teacher and administrator in CPS. The class is designed for anyone who would like to learn basic conversational Spanish. Each class will be six weeks in length, and will meet the needs of the individual students. The class will primarily be conversation, but some reading and writing skills will be included. The class is adaptable to various levels of Spanish from true beginners to intermediate.

Susan has two goals for the classroom, to work hard and to have fun. The focus of the lessons will be immersion in the language, which means that students will have activities other than just speaking in the classroom. Students will be exposed to movies and television in Spanish. She plans to venture out with the class into the Spanish-speaking community, to museums and restaurants, to enhance the program. There will be Spanish-speaking guests in the class, and students will have opportunities for one-on-one conversations.

At the beginning of the class, students will be asked what they want to learn, and the class will be adapted to meet those needs.
