Community ASL Classes

For nearly 40 years, people have been coming to The Learning Center for the Deaf to learn American Sign Language (ASL).  While some may have a deaf family member, many simply love languages and want to learn ASL. Whatever your reason for enrolling, we promise a dynamic and engaging learning experience led by instructors who are Deaf and fluent ASL users. Our classes are small and encourage full participation in a fun and conversational setting. While you work to develop an ASL vocabulary and understanding of the language, you will also be learning about Deaf culture and history.

We are accepting inquiries from business and organizations who wish to learn and offer ASL classes as part of professional development. Fill out our inquiry form below to get in touch with us!


2022-2023 Community ASL Classes

We are excited to announced our tentative schedule for 2022-2023 Community ASL Classes for anyone interested in learning or developing their skills in ASL. Sessions are scheduled over six weeks, but please note some adjustments may be made due to holidays or instructor conflicts. Registration links will post under each session as enrollment opens.

This cost is separate from our registration fee. Once registration is complete, you will receive a specific link and code from your instructor.

I am learning ASL so that I can be a better communicator with my deaf and hard of hearing coworkers. In addition to strengthening my ASL skills, I have loved learning the origins of some ASL signs, and also about Deaf Culture.
