On Feb 21. at 4pm, we’re celebrating International Language Day during our usual Sign Club slot – join us for fun in multiple languages!
Using a list of common words and phrases, we’ll learn some basic communication in each of the languages represented, as well as some of the history of each language, who speaks it, where they’re from, and some customs from the cultures who use each language!
If you know a language other than English, and would like to teach the group about it, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
