HCC to offer sign language courses

August 26, 2009

Hagerstown Community College's Center for Continuing Education will offer sign language courses geared toward helping students master the necessary skills needed for communicating with hearing-impaired individuals.

The first course in the series, "Sign Language: Basic I," will be offered Mondays from Sept. 14 to Nov. 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. The course is a beginning level course designed to help students build vocabulary as they learn the manual alphabet and standard signing techniques. HCC instructor Linda Turner teaches the course and has been teaching sign language for more than 25 years.

Other courses offered include "Sign Language: Basic Sign III," "Sign Language: Conversational Signing III," "Sign Language: Conversational Signing V" and "Interpreting I."
