American Sign Language (ASL) is one of the most popular languages in the Deaf Community in the US, but there are others! Did you know that almost every country and even regions within a country have their own sign language? Let’s take a look at how the English language differs from ASL. We’ll also explore some basic signs, Deaf culture, and learn some simple tips’ on communicating with universal signs that we all tend to innately have.
