American Sign Language

Cathy's ASL Tutoring Testimonials
American Sign Language Lessons All Year Round

September 5, 2007

Cathy Bourdon is bright, cheerful, energetic and very patient. She adapted easily to our requirements and taught us how to sign our selections of conversational sentences. However, she still held us to the discipline required to learn the language: letters & numbers first, since they form the basis of most full-word signs. For our lessons, she provided pictorial representations of each new sentence and allowed us to video-record her signing each sentence for later review. Signs frequently include movement which drawings donít convey.

She has a very good depth in sign language ... itís her working language. She uses it every day and has for decades, using a few variants. The advantage of this is that she can explain the nuances of related signs and can focus more on the ones that are more commonly used. She is hearing impaired, but can follow a spoken conversation through sound and lip-reading, a great comfort factor to those with hearing. This also means that she can appreciate and guide students through the grammatical differences between spoken language and sign language, which helps both hearing and hearing-impaired students to understand the otherís conventions.

With Cathy, we joke, we laugh ... we have a good time. If youíd like a reference from us, feel free to contact us through Cathy.
