Hawai‘i Sign Language Class


Sep 4, 2019 to Oct 9, 2019
01:00 PM until 03:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Saturday.


These special classes provide participants with an introduction to Hawai‘i Sign Language (HSL), a critically endangered language isolate that developed independently of all other known languages. Class is taught in ASL with written English support. Questions? Contact Roz Kia at roz@csc-hawaii.org or (808) 284-3551.


Please note that HSL is not based on the Hawaiian language so students will not learn Hawaiian vocabulary. However, they will learn the signs that developed among Hawai‘i deaf individuals decades ago as they communicated among themselves. Today, HSL is still found among a small group of Deaf senior citizens. CSC also offers American Sign Language classes.
