Individuals interested in learning American Sign Language can pick up the basics in Kellogg Community College’s upcoming Lifelong Learning course.

The KCC Lifelong Learning Department’s latest American Sign Language course will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. for six Thursdays, Feb. 8 through March 14, in Room 304 of the Lane-Thomas Memorial Building, on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.

Registration is $160 and can be completed online at https://reg136.imperisoft.com/kellogg/ProgramDetail/3332383233/Registration.aspx. Registrants using the Early Bird Discount Code EBSP24 can get 10% off the cost of registration, and a learning guide is included in the class fee.

American Sign Language is one of the most widely used languages in the United States and mastering it can open up many opportunities for communication.

Students in this KCC course – which is intentionally designed for students with little or no prior experience with ASL – will learn the basics of ASL with a focus on cultural context, fingerspelling, basic vocabulary and grammatical structures, as well as ways to develop their visual and gestural expressive skills.
