Mr. Dally’s ASL 1 class has been a wonderful experience for my eighth grade daughter. His enthusiasm and excellent teaching have sparked major interest. She enjoyed every class, and all of the projects and assignments were appropriate for the material and challenging enough to inspire her to work hard. As my daughter has recently begun ASL conversation coaching with a local interpreter, we were told that the work she is doing in class is college-level and is preparing her very well for future study. We have nothing but high praise for Mr. Dally and his classes!

My daughter has taken two years of ASL with Mr. Dally during high school, she has thoroughly enjoyed the classes! They weren't easy.... Mr. Dally really expects his students to work and study and practice, but it sure pays off in how quickly they learn!   She has enjoyed his teaching style and he has always been helpful and quick with answering questions.  We recommend Mr. Dally to ANYONE who has a desire to not just dabble in ASL but who really wants to know it well! Can't say enough good about his classes!

We recommend Mr. Dally to ANYONE who wants to learn, not just dabble!
