Event description

Description

Students will learn some introductory phrases in American Sign Language (ASL) and Pidgin Signed English (PSE) as well as some of history of the signed languages in the world with a bit of Deaf history sprinkled in. By the end of the class you will be prepared to order your favorite coffee at the Signing Starbucks in Washington, DC.

Instructor(s): Alexis Taylor-Young

Alexis Taylor-Young is a junior at WRVHS. She has special interest in linguistics and history and has been signing for many years.


Alexis started learning from a book as a small child, then she went to the Austine/Lions Camp for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing for several years. She’s kept up with signing in a variety of ways, from attending events for Deaf and hard-of-hearing students to working on a song interpretation for 4-H for the past two years, to watching too much d/Deaf YouTube.

Number of Sessions: This course meets one time.
