This class focuses on conversational sign language and slag. After getting to know each other, we'll begin an activity that focuses on slang and conversational sign language in pop music.

This is a safe environment for young adults and children, aged 8-18 to get an authentic experience from a Deaf professional.

As a Black man with a profound hearing loss, exposure to life in a world that is not accommodating most times, but also denied access to my own community until my skills were deemed up to par, has definitely broadened my perspective in providing a deeper understanding of how to connect with people. I have taught workshops, at camps, performed, interpreted and volunteered with hearing and deaf youths of all ages, and now I am able to make a learning experience enjoyable regardless of age yet still provide enough structure and discipline to ensure proper tutelage.

I've planned many events for our company, and this is one of my favorites. The team at Deafinitely Dope (Matt & Martis) are kind, warm, funny, fun and make learning ASL approachable, easy, and give an incredible insight into the Deaf Community. I feel super lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from them.

I was the only guest so it was nice to have private conversation in sign language with native. Coming from hearing world, the session was really a friendly introduction to the ASL. Also, for me personally, it also felt soothing to be in silence but yet so interactive, communicative, and expressive.

I've coordinated multiple classes with Matt, and each time the teams walk away really excited that they learned something new and had a great time. It's also an amazing opportunity to bridge connections between the hearing and deaf communities. We love this class.
