Hi! I'm a student from the Netherlands and I'm doing some research on sign languages, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me by answering a few questions.


What sign language(s) do you use?

Do you sometimes struggle to communicate with people that don’t know sign language? How do you ususally overcome this?

How often do you often encounter signs that you don’t know?

How often do you experience that you use different signs than other people that use the same sign language?

How much would you say your sign language depends on mouth movement and body language ?(just a percentage is enough)

Was it hard for you to learn sign language? / Was it hard for you to learn a spoken language?

What is the most important difference between sign languages and spoken languages?

Do you use sayings that come from spoken languages in your sign language?

Have you ever tried to communicate with another signing person that doesn’t know the same sign language? If so, what sign language and how much did you understand?



Thank you in advance!

    • My name is Brandy. I'm hearing. I've had friends that are deaf.  I would like to practice up on my sign language because I just started working with customers again.

    • Hello! My name is Reny, and I am searching for opportunities to practice ASL. I am hearing, and I am learning ASL as an independent study for school. I want to learn this language right, which is hard to do without another pair of eyes, so that is why I'm here. I am a novice in ASL, but I do already know some syntax, a handful of signs, and my alphabet, even if I do stumble a bit. I am looking forward to getting to know this community, and I am hoping I can be of assistance to others, as they are to me.
