Terrible customer service from York College. Class was supposed to start feb 3rd. They rescheduled it to feb 24th. Then a few days before that class they rescheduled until April 7th. Jump to last week, and they completely cancel the course. I am now struggling to find another affordable class for my daughter in queens. I wish I could have just attended the class. I don't even know how I'll get refunded for the course.

I enjoyed leaner ASL and Pro. Shirley Nunally was so efficient and thorough. She made the class interesting and introduced the deaf to me in a way I never considered before. If it's possible for her to teach a level 2 class I am interested . Thank you, when will I recieve my certificate of completion. I need it for school.

This class was interesting and challenging. The teacher was encouraging, patient and made sure we understood what she was saying, even offering to explain in different terms.

Overall, I greatly appreciated this course. To learn about the history of our and to be able to be hands on with our mannequins. What I do wish for was more one on one time with the instructor, so I could have fully master the braiding technique. I also believe that environment plays a part in learning. The classroom was way too cold and the chairs were really small, so it took away from the concentrating fully on hair. I would still recommend because it was a valuable lesson taught and this is a great investment towards the person braiding! The $25 hair kit, you can definetly get at the dollar store for around $10 bucks or less!

This class did not start as originally listed. No one from Coursehorse informed me. Please also note that the end date for the class is June 2nd. Regardless, I love the class. The instructor is knowledgeable and full of life. Please inform when there is an intermediate class.

The best thing about York College was its professors. They were always willing to help and genuinely wanted you to do well. If you did not it was no fault of theirs. I loved the convenience and diversity of this College. It tends to get bad reviews because of where it is located but some of the smartest and most hard working people I have ever met attended York College. It caters to the needs of all age groups and all social classes. Thank you for giving me somewhere I could grow and realize what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.
