With students across 18 states, we’ve had plenty of success stories! Check out a few testimonials from students of our ASL Level One and Level Two classes below.
I came to Palmetto Goodwill’s ASL 1 class knowing nothing about the language. Fortunately, with Ms. Sonia Pagan’s patient instruction, and the instructional support provided by Ms. Renee Beauford, my ignorance did not matter. In just seven short weeks Palmetto’s ASL course taught me essentials like fingerspelling and enough practical vocabulary to interact with individuals who are deaf and hearing impaired. I cannot recommend the course enough!

The ASL 2 class was absolutely a must. The class was the highlight of my work week and I enjoyed the diversity in the class. This course has a practical approach to ASL and was fun even after a full day of work. Our instructor encouraged us to use our skills in class and out in the community. She inspired the class to continually learn and love the Deaf community. Our whole division took ASL as it was a goal for our organization this year. We practice together and I now use my new skills in my work with my Deaf clients. It is so empowering to communicate with them.

Two of my clients are hearing impaired and multiple others are non verbal. I have been working with them on basic signs I could find and learn. However I didn’t always have much confidence with it. Now, having taken the class with Ms. Sonia I am happy to report that I am much more confident in what I am teaching my guys and they are learning much faster. Recently my hardest client signed to me spontaneously with out prompting and made his request clear! It was a breakthrough moment for us and my heart was filled with joy!
