Questions I Get About Our Adult Signing Classes
I find it appropriate because there's no cookie-cutter way that individuals teach an informal Intro to Conversational Sign Class... It's all very different! I say that because maybe one class just focuses on the ABCs and maybe another class assumes that the ABCs are known and doesn't even address it! While lastly, another class just continues to teach categorically (e.g. colors, people, food) and forgets to incorporate it's functionality!
So .. I don't want to give our class away completely but I want to say, yes you will learn your ABCs. Why? Because handshapes have changed over time (just like the English language has changes!) and also, I'm a perfectionist and why not make sure we're all signing them correctly!?
We also learn simple conversations as if you were to meet someone new, what would you say!? (psst - I'll give you a hint!)
- Hi, How are you?
- I'm good. What's your name?
- My name is Kristy. What's your name?
- My name is Tom. Where do you live?
Etc.! and guess what? - that's just lesson one! Seems like a little, but if you don't feel 100% confident to doing all of that fluently then this is the class for you!
And we just grow from there. Each week we add some more questions/sentences. Of course, there's no pressure. But we do have fun. We do apply what with learn. And most importantly we do Sign! Sign Sign and SIGN!
