We make sure our students understand how JSL developed and how its use has evolved in Jamaica.
We encourage all our students to truly understand Deaf culture as they seek to become a part of it.
Of course, we ensure that our students develop a vocabulary of JSL signs and grammar.
We encourage students not to use their voice while learning to sign. Students are immersed in the culture and language by signing as much as possible from the 1st day of class (yes from DAY 1) and if they don't know the sign..they spell the word!
Learn by Seeing
Students learn to use their eyes to understand signs and replicate them.
The only way to learn a language is to use it, so our students interact with Deaf people and attend Deaf events.
Our courses all involve interactive live group classes delivered by our paired instructors.
Students are provided with a printed reference for the classes that includes most of the topics and vocabulary covered.
We provide a full DVD featuring visual demonstrations of the vocabulary covered in the course.
