CCA Launches ASL Webinars to Help You Learn to Sign

CCA American Sign Language Webinars

You can learn conversational sign language with your CCA friends now through CCA’s new ASL webinars. These live, weekly webinars will feature a short lesson (to supplement your personal practice and study), the introduction of new ideas, words, or phrases, and a chance to be one of the webcams attendees who practices along on video chat! The webinars will also be recorded and made available at a later date.

CCA Mom and Son duo, Rose and Frederick Seitz
Rose and Frederick live in Northeast Ohio and have been signing since Frederick was a baby.  Frederick, 24,  attends University of Akron and will graduate in May with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering.
