Top 10 Reasons You Should Learn the Sign Language

Today, many hearing want to learn the sign language because their awareness about the Deaf Community in Malaysia are increased. Don't fear if they don't like you to use the sign language no matter you are Deaf or Hearing. Why the Hearing people like to study the sign language? They told me that the sign language is very fun and expressing your feeling on your own with the idea of sign language, eg. singing. The sign language are the beauty of communication in such a unique form.

You think that Deaf have Deaf friends only? No! Today, Deaf also open to the Hearing community. The Deaf love to invite the Hearing friends join to eat lunch/dinner, playing the activities together, enjoy to talk each other via sign language and etc!

My colleagues enjoyed to learn the sign language with me in my workplace or during lunch. They are very happy because they can communicate via sign language. Sometimes they also forget the sign...Hehe. My colleague and I always go eat lunch together and enjoy to chat in sign language. :)

You are free to go about making friends with Deaf and enjoy to learn from Deaf Culture Malaysia as you like.

  1. When looking for an online American Sign Language learning program, you need one that will suit your needs. You need an online American Sign Language program that will be conducive to your learning style. Some of the main features to look for in an American Sign Language Program online include, grammar presented in a video format for ease of understanding, themed lessons with limited vocabulary learned in lesson. After learning the vocabulary in each lesson, you need retention exercises that will help solidify your new knowledge by offering practice. Additionally, with online American Sign Language programs, you need one that will offer fingerspelling practice. For the most part, fingerspelling in American Sign Language is the toughest aspect of the language to grasp. It takes an extensive amount of practice to be skilled in fingerspelling. The more you practice, the better you will become.
