Message from Julie

I cannot think of a better person to guide you or a family member through the process of learning ASL than my sister, Jennifer. She has dedicated her life to teaching others this fascinating language. She teaches with great energy, and an enthusiasm that is contagious. Her lessons are educational and fun. I don’t just say these things as a proud SODA (Sibling of a Deaf Adult), but as someone who has sat in on Jennifer’s lessons and witnessed first hand how much her students enjoy learning ASL from her. If you are considering learning ASL to communicate with a friend or family member, I cannot encourage you enough to do so. For those of us with deaf loved ones, I don’t believe it’s a choice to learn sign, I believe it’s a responsibility. For those of you who do not have the fortune of having a deaf loved one in your life, I believe your life can still be deeply enriched by learning ASL. It is truly the most beautiful language I have never heard.  ​ - Julie B., Sister
