Torrance, CA, January 16, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Chinese Community Church of South Bay is offering a free American Sign Language class as part of its community service program starting January 19th 2015. The class will meet every Monday from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm for 5 weeks. It is a beginner class so no previous experience in sign language is expected. This class is team taught by John Silva, a recent graduate of the El Camino Sign Language Interpreter Training Program and Mon Yee, a deaf person who's native language is sign language, and who regularly attends Chinese Community Church of South Bay. This class is very interactive and the pace is easy going. The teacher usually spends a little bit of time reviewing the previous week’s material, then introduces new concepts. Students will pair up to practice what they learn at the end of the class. The book “Sign Language Made Simple: A Complete Introduction to American Sign Language Paperback – August 18, 1997” by Karen Lewis, et al will be used for this class but students are not required to buy it. Although there are no homework assignments for this class, students are encouraged to practice at home so that they can make faster progress.
This sign language class will be conducted at Chinese Community Church of South Bay (25420 Narbonne Avenue, Lomita, CA 90717). Everyone, from 12 years of age and up, is welcome to join this class – one does not need to be a regular goer of the Chinese Community Church of South Bay to register.
