Hello everyone,
 
ASL Teaching Services will be closed for the Spring term due to Covid-19. Our main concern is the safety and well being of all residents living in the Deaf Centre of Manitoba building. 
 
We are considering providing “online – group live chat” for our Spring term. This would be a first for us and for you. We have some kinks to work out so your patience during this time would be greatly appreciated. On-line classes would start on April 18 and be limited to 12 students per course. Course fees will remain the same. We accept a one time payment using E-Transfer. If a cheque would be a preferred method of payment, please contact me. Registration for on-line courses will close on Saturday, April 11, 2020. We will then inform you as to whether on-line Spring term classes will proceed. If you are interested in taking an on-line class, please email me at your earliest convenience.
 
We look forward to seeing you in the fall term. 
 
Stay home and be safe,
Cathy Braunlich
 

About American Sign Language Teaching Services

American Sign Language is designed to introduce a visual-gestural language used by the Deaf Community in Canada and the United States. Students will focus on the basic conversational skills, emphasizing receptive and expressive abilities. The courses stress a functional/notional approach, and give practice for visual/gestural communication followed by comprehension skills and grammatical structures. Communicative competence in ASL ultimately depends on one’s capabilities to satisfactorily progress through structured activities in a series of ASL courses. The content for the courses in ASL is broken into introduction, sign production, extended comprehension, interaction, and breakaways, which include team-building, facial expression, visualization, command, and finger spelling. Also, it includes cumulative reviews in which students learn how to make appropriate introductions, how to get someone’s attention and how to negotiate the environment of signed conversations. Exposure to the Deaf Community improves abilities as mentioned earlier.
