Coos Bay Public Library has partnered with instructor Kandy Bergquist to offer ASL Practice Place via Zoom. Bergquist teaches American Sign Language and signed English at Southwestern Oregon Community College. She has worked with the deaf and hard of hearing as an interpreter, classroom aid and speech pathologist. ASL Practice Place meets every third Thursday of the month at noon. The next event is October 21.
The program is for those who wish to practice their ASL conversational skills and help other learners in a friendly setting. Attendees will have the opportunity to sign in ASL as a group for one hour in a casual, informal environment. This is not a class, but Bergquist will provide ideas for conversational topics. Beginners are welcome.
The program is free and open to anyone who wishes to sharpen their ASL conversational skills. Register for the event at https://is.gd/daR3SI
