    My friend (and collegue) and her hasband are deaf. She’s been teaching us a few words and phrases in SL. When I saw this post I though ‘but that’s not how you say mom and dad’.
    So I learned that there are as many SL dialects as there are countries. You would have though that SL is universal?
    good luck learning!

      I thought that too until I started doing this weekly post! I’m also trying to find a good site to help learn the grammar since that too is a lot different that spoken English.
