Discover Sign Language ONLINE

$115

with _ed2go _ed2go, Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative

Calendar runs for 26 weeks

It's truly amazing that we can communicate just by using our hands! Add different facial expressions, and you have a conversation—the language of Deaf people. In this course, you'll discover how to use this graceful, expressive language to communicate with Deaf people.

You'll begin with an introduction to the language itself, and learn to create the signs for numbers. You'll also master the sign alphabet so you can fingerspell proper names.

Then you'll learn to sign phrases and expand to complete sentences, and see how to put it all together so you can introduce yourself and start a conversation. Along the way you'll learn signs for colors, numbers, where you live, family, and the activities you like to do and even the ones you don't.

Throughout, you'll learn by watching videos that demonstrate how to make the signs and how to incorporate facial expressions to communicate in this beautiful language. This course is taught using the best practices of the industry with a minimum of audio support. Throughout, you'll be immersed in silence, so you'll gain an understanding of the perspective of Deaf people and sign language.

You'll also gain an introduction to the world of Deaf culture and explore topics such as lipreading, baby signs, and the career of interpreting. By the end of the course, when you meet a Deaf person, you'll be ready to sign!

Fearless Public Speaking: Speak, Act And Look Like a Leader

$99

with Bonnie Gross, York Adult & Community Education

When there are two people with the same skills entering a room, delivering a speech, or participating in a meeting– the person who looks, acts and sounds like a leader is the person most remembered. Make sure next time—it’s YOU! This class teaches you the skills not usually taught in traditional “presentation skills” courses; you will learn the secrets of how to speak, look and act like a leader. Being a calm, confident, impactful presenter starts before you write the first line - it starts with what and how you think. Learn the speaking skills of great public figures, such as John F. Kennedy and Steve Jobs, who have used their voices and speaking style to exude power and influence. (Approx. 12 hours.)
