I love sign language. I am hard of hearing and a student of ASL. I can sign fairly well and love to do it but find when I am around deaf people I am afraid to sign because they correct me constantly and even laugh at me. I find this very rude and not productive at all. I am teaching my family and friends to sign with me but would love to branch out into volunteer work with the deaf… but I’m afraid because of this issue.
Comments for Deaf people sometimes rude to new signers
