Resuming ASL Groups Soon (But Online)

We are getting ready to resume our various American Sign Language groups soon. These will be online for now until the restrictions at the coffee shops and such are lifted.

We’re seeing if we can have everything ready to resume the first Saturday of October 2020. Watch for updates. We’ll be piggy-backing on the software from a 501(c)3 non-profit known as RPG Research. The founder of Spokane ASL (Hawke Robinson) is also the founder of this volunteer-run organization.

We’ll be using the free, opensource, private, video conferencing software you can run straight from your web browser or mobile device: Jitsi.

We’re tentatively planning the following schedule for the following goups:

ASL Beginners to low Intermediate Study Group Online (must already have fingerspelling proficiency and at least some of the basic signs): Saturdays 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (PST8PDT).

ASL Intermediate+ Study Group (slow but somewhat basic conversational ASL on up, Deaf & HoH welcomed!): Saturdays 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm PST8PDT).

American Sign Language Role-Playing Game Group 1: 2nd & 4th Saturdays each month from Noon to 2:45 pm.

Spokane ASL Nov 23 4 pm Session cancelled

Just a quick FYI that this Saturday’s 4:00 pm Spokane American Sign Language Study Group (spokaneasl.com) session is cancelled since Sarah, Katy (and Hawke) aren’t available to help facilitate the session that day due to all 3 having schedule conflicts. The rest of the schedule remains, and the Spokane ASL Study Group Regular Schedule resumes next week.

Remember, the beginners to intermediate session is 3-4 pm at Forza’s.

While the intermediate to advanced ASL Social Group session is 4-5 pm. Please don’t attend this second session in general if you aren’t reasonably conversant in ASL. Deaf and Hard of Hearing very much welcomed!

You are of course welcome to practice yourselves, it is just that the primary facilitators won’t be available to help guide you through the ASL Study Guide.

Happy Signing!
