There is a school for the deaf in Raleigh, you could call them and ask if they have some classes.

Search “sign language lessons” on YouTube and a ton of educational videos come up… good luck! I think that’s really sweet. 🙂

I used to sign a very long time ago, but I have lost the art over the years. It wasn’t hard to learn. I suggest looking into a community college to see if they offer that type of class or maybe call a local hospital in your area to see if they have classes. You can also go to the library and check out a book on sign language, and these days, utube probably would be a good source.

Here is a link to a free online course, and it looks like it also has videos.

@toBeMrsPierce: Don’t have any helpful advice, just wanted to say that this is so sweet of you! I am sure she will love that you took the time to learn it. I think it would also add something very special to the wedding.

I just teared up when I read your post.  Such an amazingly sweet gesture, she (and he) will be very gracious for your efforts, I am sure.

Check your local community college or community center, there are lots of classes that could teach you the basics.

ETA: It’s also best to learn from someone who is Deaf, I wouldnt definitely look for a class taught by a Deaf teacher if it was available.

I think you’ve gotten a lot of great suggestions so I’m just going to say…

You’re AWESOME! That is a WONDERFUL thing (way more than a gesture for sure) I’m sure with that kind of heart and service you and your FH are going to have a wonderful life! =)

considering that you have such a short time to learn AND you want to learn specifically your vows, i would try to find an individual tutor.  good luck!

Hi

I am actually an ASL – English Interpreter. This brings up a lot of things in terms of access for your wedding. Do you plan on hiring an interpreter for her to have access to her sons wedding? Does she have residual hearing? It would also depend if you plan on signing exact english (perhaps her language choice) or in American Sign Language (which is very different , more based on what you mean aside from what you say with an entirely different grammar and structure)

If you have any questions please feel free to message me , I hope this helps 🙂
