I have known a few people that were deaf over the years and have enjoyed learning enough sign language to communicate. The best experience I have had was a co-worker that was deaf and had the best sense of humor ever! He brought me a postcard-size card with the alphabet in sign in case we got stuck and/or had to spell things. This was great, since he kept me laughing all the time at work! If I hadn’t made a little effort to learn signs than I would have definitely missed out on a lot of fun!
Don’t be afraid to try to communicate in sign even if you aren’t very good at it! It is worth the effort.
