    What exactly do you mean when you say "sign language"

    Is the instructor a native hoh/deaf/coda signer?

    Thanks ... Just curious.
    For those in the area - is it safe to assume that it would be ASL then, vs PSE/CASE etc

    It is basic asl for new learners, and she also runs deaf socials. It is a good thing for people to get their feet wet.
