Ever wondered how you can communicate without using your voice? Come hang out with Veronica and learn some words in American Sign Language!
When you use Sign Language, you speak with your hands. That way, you can communicate with people who don't hear. It's an interesting language - and super fun to learn.
In this experience, you'll learn the alphabet and some words in American Sign Language. Veronica is also an avid traveller, so you can hear some of her favourite stories about languages across the world!
You get to this experience by skytrain. The closest station is Stadium-Chinatown. It takes most people about 6 minutes to get from the skytrain to the library where the experience happens. There are sidewalks with ramped curbs all the way between the station and the library. There are busy intersections to cross along the way, and there are traffic lights with walk signals at these intersections.
There are also lots of bus routes running nearby. All of the sidewalks in the neighbourhood have ramped curbs, and there are traffic lights with walk signals on every corner. So wherever you get off the bus, you'll have these for your route to the library.
