I'm sad that they no longer offer the interp program here, but this is a good start until we move.

I'm hoping the teacher is deaf, I've heard its much easier and much more accurate to learn from a native signer.

I know the basics too, but I want to take it a step further and learn grammar and things about the culture.

For the first ASL class I took at St. Clair, the teacher was a child of Deaf adults (CODA) and she was excellent. The second class I took had a Deaf instructor and she was also excellent and I really enjoyed that we were forced to sign throughout the class because it was really great for immersion and for stretching yourself. The only beef I had with the second class's instructor was that she often didn't show up so a lot of classes got rescheduled.
