Went to my first ASL class last night. There were about 10 people in the class, and they all knew one another! They had all taken the previous two courses together but they welcomed me kindly. It seems like a really nice diverse group.
The nicest part is that the teacher (who is Deaf) knew my grandpa. They were friends. She even called my family (using TTY) when she heard about his passing in April. She knows all about my family so it was really nice when she was telling me stories (through sign) about him.
It is three hours every Monday and will continue until December 5th. I'm already looking forward to the next class! I'm really glad I am taking this course.
