"Intro to ASL was a great class. The instructor did a wonderful job of providing useful information and gave us lots of opportunity to practice. It was exactly what I was looking for. This introductory course gave me a chance to determine if ASL is something I want to learn more about, and I do!" - spring 2017 student Jane Shaughness
