RI ASL CLUB Events and announcements
The RI ASL Club is part of ASLA and affords students the opportunity to experience a voice-off environment with classmates, students from other levels and members of the Deaf community.
1) Each year, RI ASL Club organizes events to allow students from different levels to be together, to meet members of the Deaf community, and practice signing in a relaxed environment. There is no “membership” in the Club and the events are free, except for any expense involved in the activity itself. Students do have to register for each event so we can plan the numbers.Here are our free club events for the next semester:
Sat, (date TBA), Silent Bowling 2 - 4 pm at Legion Bowl in Cranston
Sat, May 18, mini-golf, 1 - 3 pm
Sat, June 8, Coffee Hour 1 -2 pm at Seven Stars Bakery in E. Providence.
2. This year, the Club has an expanded role in our program. About once a month, The Club will offer workshops that are for our students of any level. It is a conversational class where we will talk about any topics of interest. Students will develop and improve their conversational skills. Each workshop is 1 1/2 hours and the cost is $10.00. Students need to register ahead of time so we can plan for adequate space. The schedule for these workshops is:
Sat, May 11, 1 - 2:30 pm
Fri, June 7, 6 - 7:30 pm
3.) Important announcement: We are finishing the details of the certificate program. Students will soon have the option of taking classes just as they are now, or being part of the certificate program. Students will have an additional 5 hours of class time each semester and study materials that will be provided. The certificate program will start at level 10, and testing will be done twice before graduation.
