    This workshop focuses on basic LSM/Spanish language communication techniques while understanding how to avoid “faux pass” when in contact with the Latino Deaf and Hearing community. We will briefly discuss the different cultural settings and the language combinations-ASL/English, ASL/Spanish, ASL/English/Spanish, ASL/LSM, and ASL/LSM/Spanish/English. By the end of class, the attendees will mingle using only basic LSM/Spanish sentences including some appropriate mouth morphemes.The workshop will close with a brief discussion on the enriched reference list of multicultural corpus.
