It’s a new year, and a perfect time to take a look at reassessing goals, making changes in your life, and finding new ways to help others.

If one of your goals has always been to learn American Sign Language, we have the perfect way to make that happen right in Osceola County…

Beginning February 7th and Hart Memorial Library in Kissimmee, you’ll be able to acquire the basics useful in communicating with deaf and hard-of-hearing people in the community.

These ASL classes are taught by actual deaf instructors with students learning to carry on an everyday conversation with deaf individuals.

There will be role-playing and games designed to teach basic signs that are used as tools. By the end of class, some of the skills you will have learned are the manual alphabet, numbers, introducing yourself, facial expressions, talking about family, and more. Registration required.

Classes will take place on Mondays at 6:30 pm February 7-28 at Hart Memorial Library, located at 211 E Dakin Ave, Kissimmee.

Registration for the ASL classes is required. Just go to
