EWC Highlights Upcoming Community Education American Sign Language class

Monday, March 26th, 2018 • 2:39 pm

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering an Introduction to American Sign Language class. This class will be held on Tuesdays, April 3 through May 1, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 pm in CTEC 210 and the cost is $40.

American Sign Language (ASL) is a natural language that serves as the predominant sign language of deaf communities in the United States and most of Anglophone Canada.

EWC student, Jaxon Heyrend, is excited about sharing his knowledge of American Sign Language. He has planned some creative and innovative activities to make learning this language fun for everyone.

In this four week class Jaxson will cover alphabet, numbers, basic phrases, basic nouns and some verbs, as well as information about the “deaf culture”.

Parents and grandparents, sign language is a great way for you to communicate with your little one because babies’ understanding of language and motor skills develop much faster than their ability to speak. Learning signs such a drink, food, hot, and more may lead to less frustration and tears.

To register for this class or others, contact the EWC Community Education office at 307.532.8323 or stop by 3200 West C Street in Torrington.
