Adult Sign Language Classes

Do you have co-workers, family or friends who use sign language to communicate? Learn the basics here! Participants will learn everyday conversational signs and concepts in a fun environment. Fair warning – there is very little use of voice after the first class! We believe immersion in a language is the best way to learn.

What will I learn?
Participants will learn basic, everyday concepts to communicate in American Sign Language. That includes daily conversations, and local signs relevant to Lexington and Kentucky.  Review and practice will be included in every session.

MEET THE TEACHER!

Hillary Johnson

My name is Hillary Johnson. I was born deaf, raised here in Kentucky. I graduated from Kentucky School for the Deaf in 2000, went to college for a year and decided it wasn’t for me. I work full time at McLane. I also can read lips and speak well. It’s great to be in both worlds (deaf and hearing) so I can communicate with no problems. I have an 11 years old son, who’s very athletic just like me! During my free time, I watch ball games, and play coed softball. I am excited to share my experience and teach ASL with the community.

Emily Dillon

My name is Emily Dillon and I am a deaf individual who uses ASL fluently to communicate. I was born deaf and was taught to speak orally and lipread at a early age. I began learning ASL 19 years ago and since then, ASL has been my primary language. I am ecstatic to share my love for ASL, help the community learn sign language, and build confidence in communicating with deaf people.
