Sign Language Courses

We’re excited to offer a series of online sign languages courses from around the world via Zoom with native experienced Deaf Sign Language instructors. CEUs are available by participating in these courses for anyone interested in learning second sign language.

There's never been a to learn about other new sign languages and cultures.

Cultural Connection

Learn more about different countries through the optic of local deaf natives. They teach you about their country’s language, deaf culture, and much more with unmatched passion.


Upon request, Registry of Interpreter CEU credits are available for participation in these learning experiences.




Often we are truly curious about what it is like for deaf people in other countries out of our typical day-to-day routine. These experiences allow us to dive into a reality different than ours.


Pick up on the intriciaties of different sign languages, as learning a new language is one of the best way to expand one’s horizons.

What will you learn?

It’s easy to feel lost in a new place and not know what’s real. But with our courses, you’ll have the tools necessary for interacting with Deaf people who live there as well as other locals so that your experience is authentic!


Each country in this world has its own rich culture, both deaf culture and general culture. Our goal is to give you a brief immersion into both.


Sometimes the entire history of a country is hard to translate into writing or through video. It is often easier to learn about history from a native of that country who explains in sign language.
