Any recommendations on where to look to learn ASL (American Sign Language)? I live in Minneapolis and have been looking at various college websites and haven't found anything. I even spoke to a person who works with hearing impaired and she said she took it while in college. Where should I look? Any thoughts?

If you are decent at languages, you can look online at the ASL dictionary.

You can also check out your local high school's adult education courses or the community college courses.

You may want to see if your community has a Deaf Center, they often have ASL and Signed English classes for people. And the best way to learn sign is from folks who are Deaf.
I also suggest community college classes.

I know this is an old post. However, Saint Paul Community College has both a certificate and Associate's degree interpreting program in American Sign Language. Here are the links:
