WELCOME BACK! We’re wasting no time this year and are ready to dig in! This Fight Club will be jam packed with information so bring your notebook. Throughout all the various activities that we will do, the main point is to sign what you mean… NOT sign what you hear. CONCEPT CONCEPT CONCEPT. In our profession, a very simple sentence may require a lot of thought and interpretation to accurately convey the speakers thought.

This months Fight Club we will be focusing on the following:

Choosing the right sign for any given concept
Voicing
Ethics
Vocabulary
Sign Production
Breakout groups to discuss real life interpreting scenarios

This Fight Club promises to be rich in content so take advantage and be here. Bring your pretty self and any snack or booze that you would like to share.

We would like to begin a raffle this year so if there’s any SWAG that you have or your band has a CD or you have art work or even home grown tomatoes or maybe you have a chicken that lays eggs–BRING IT FOR OUR GIVE AWAY!!

I’m looking forward to seeing you all this Friday.
“NOW you’re speakin’ my language”

We’re the only area agency to guarantee all of our ASL interpreters to maintain national certification!
