Interesting Facts About Sign Language:
Did you know that……..
- Sign language is not universal. There are almost as many sign languages as there are spoken languages in the world. Even British and American Sign Language are different.
- French Sign Language and American Sign Language are the most alike.
- Sign Language is not only about signs; it also includes facial expressions, body language, hand positions, hand movements, gestures, and some sounds.
- According to the World Federation of the Deaf, there are 70 million people in the world who use sign language to communicate.
- In American Sign Language (ASL), the alphabet can be demonstrated using one hand. However, in German and British Sign Languages, two hands are used.
