Introductory sign language courses offered through HCC

This fall, Hagerstown Community College’s Center for Continuing Education is offering a wide variety of specially designed sign language courses geared towards helping students master the necessary skills needed for communicated with hearing impaired individuals.
The first course in the series, “Sign Language: Basic I,” is offered on Mondays, from Sept. 14 through Nov. 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. This 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.
In addition to “Sign Language: Basic I,” HCC offers a full line of courses from beginning to advanced interpretation. Other courses being offered this fall include “Sign Language: Basic Sign III,” “Sign Language: Conversational Signing III,” “Sign Language: Conversational Signing V,” and “Interpreting I.”
