Have you always wanted to learn sign language in order to communicate better with someone who has hearing difficulties or with a child who has a language development disorder? Maybe you know someone with Down Syndrome or with an autism spectrum disorder who uses signing to facilitate communication? Or maybe you work with young children at a daycare centre or school and you would like to use ‘real’ signs when teaching action songs or rhymes.
Now is your chance! Sign up for the course NmG: Dutch Supported by Signing.
Please note that this is not a course for using signing with spoken English. It is a course that teaches you sign language to use when you are speaking Dutch. However, even if your Dutch is limited, you can benefit from this course. There will be someone available to help translate the course leader’s instructions into English, if this is helpful.
Finger spelling, days of the week, colours, transport, holding a short conversation and much more.
12 lessons of 2 hours, on Wednesday evenings 19:00 – 21:00.
30 August, 6, 13, 20, 27 September, 4, 11, 25 October, 1, 8, 15, 22 November (29 November reservedatum)

The course leader
My name is Anja van Aalst. I am 52 years old and I work as an auditory assistant in one of Stichting Philadelphia’s assisted living facilities. I support 20 people who are hearing impaired and who also have a cognitive disability or a psychiatric disorder. This work gives me a lot of satisfaction. In addition, I have completed training with the Dutch Sign Language Centre (Nederlands Gebarencentrum) and am qualified to give signing lessons. For 2 years now, I have been giving courses in NmG: Dutch Supported by Signing, as a qualified and certified teacher. I enjoy passing on this fantastic language to other people who are interested in it.
