Community ASL Classes

The Learning Center for the Deaf is not offering community ASL classes at this time, as we are focused on restructuring our program to ensure equitable, inclusive opportunities for all. We look forward to being able to share information later this year when we are ready to begin classes again!


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.

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.
