FREE February Class for ASDC Members

While deaf people are bilinguals, they read and write in English.  Since ASL is a three dimensional language in constant motion,  it is not easy to translate into a written system. Additionally, ASL grammar is conveyed mostly through non-manual signals.  These challenges mean glossing is used only as a tool to transcribe and analyze.  It is also very effective in improving one’s signing.

This workshop give you a basic understanding of using G-L-O-S-S.  JOIN-US WILL FUN!

WHEN: Monday, February 13
TIME: 8:00 – 9:30 PM (Eastern time)
