ASL Classes

We teach ASL to all people about the deaf community.

Bridge the hearing and deaf communities with American Sign Language. This program allows hearing people to learn sign language to communicate with their family members, employees, friends and much more.

We are currently offering an in-person class at two different locations—San Leandro and San Jose. The same class will be taught at both locations. The class is designed for a beginner—someone with little to no experience with American Sign Language (ASL). The instructor will begin by introducing the alphabet, numbers and some basic signs and phrases.

If we do not have enough students registered at that time, we will postpone the class. Students already registered will have the option to keep their place in the postponed class or get a refund.

The class is six weeks long—with one class a week. Each class is two hours long.

The class we are offering at the moment is the first level. If we have enough students, we will offer the second level after the end of the first level. And then the third level after the second—and so on…

The classes are designed to be taught at six levels:

  • Level 1 – Six weeks
  • Level 2 – Six weeks
  • Level 3 – Six weeks
  • Level 4 – Six weeks
  • Level 5 – Six weeks
  • Level 6 – Six weeks

The goal is to offer six levels. At the end of the sixth level, students will have an understanding of conversational ASL.

The fee for one student to take one six-week session is $125. We are currently unable to offer any reduced-fee or free classes.

ASL at Work: Student Textbook/DVD is a suggested textbook.

It is not required—however, it is strongly recommended. This textbook will be used for all six levels of the class.

Online classes are not available at this time. We are working to combine the quality of our in-person classes with the technology required for an online class. We hope to begin offering online classes soon.

This class is designed for adults. Teenagers may take this class if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please notify us at the time of registration if someone under the age of 18 will be taking the class. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide childcare for parents with small children who want to take the class.
