Published 3:22pm Tuesday, August 31, 2010

For hearing family and friends of deaf people, those who are losing their hearing, and those who work with deaf people, now is your chance to take a community class and learn to communicate through American Sign Language.

Learn basic vocabulary, ASL sentence structure, and finger spelling. Enjoy face-to-face interaction with a qualified teacher and other students, including deaf participants.

Christian Deaf Fellowship, in conjunction with Southeastern Bible College, is offering five levels of sign language in 12 class sessions. Classes will meet on the SEBC campus on Tuesdays beginning Tuesday, Sept. 14. Classes will meet from 6-7:30 p.m. The cost is $75 for age 16 and over; $35 for first grade-age 15; and free for preschool. Classes are free for SEBC students, faculty and staff.

For more information or to register for the classes, contact Vickie Hosteller at Christian Deaf Fellowship: e-mail Vickie@deafou.com or call 822-8080.
