When you register (unless you register as a fledgling) you will be asked to indicate your signing level. This information is only used to help us provide the correct number of workshops per level. At Silent Weekend feel free to attend any class that interests you regardless of level.
The levels are:
Beginner: (Short 1-2 sentence responses, some creativity in sign usage, slow signing speed)
Intermediate: (Begins to look like a "conversation" with 2-4 sentence responses, moderate signing speed)
Advanced: (Can elaborate using ASL grammar, is comfortable with visual language, communication flows smoothly)
Silent Weekend only allows those with paid registration to enter classrooms. Minors may not be in classes without a dedicated chaperone accompanying them and both must have a paid registration. Registration is required for all classes whether or not an individual wishes to obtain Continuing Education Units.
When you register you will receive an email confirmation within a week. If you do not receive one, first check your spam folder, if it is not there please contact us as soon as possible.
Registration includes all classes, all coffee/tea breaks and the chocolate fondue during the social hour on Friday from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm. You are responsible for all your meals.

There is a class for those knowing little or no sign language. The cost is $100 for the entire weekend. This class has 6 hours of lessons on Friday and 6 hours of lessons on Saturday with one teacher using voicing to put you at ease! Fledglings may not join other classes (beginner, intermediate, advanced) during their regularly scheduled 12 hour track; however, they are welcome to join Thursday, Sunday and evening classes and social events. This is a closed group and you MUST pre-register for it. If you arrive at the Silent Weekend as a fledgling and wish to change to the regular classes, you must upgrade to the regular registration prices.
