What do you think about the sign language? Isn't it underrated?
I was just wondering this morning and I realized the sign language is the most universal language in the world. So far so good, it is the same in Africa, Ukraine, Poland, Germany and Switzerland (some of the parts of the world I have been so far). So why not we take it seriously, learn it and use it anywhere we find ourselves (especially in places we can hardly communicate)?
It's highly underrated. I have a hard of hearing daughter whom I have to learn sign language for and you'd be surprised how, in the area I live, there is little to no learning resources. Many people have to turn to online self teaching. I think people don't know how important it is until there in that situation.*self included
I agree here. It is highly underrated and should be required for all people. As we age, it is helpful in communicating with others as our hearing deteriorates.
This is good insight.. I guess it is. The sign language is the most universal in the world and now I just envisage a situation where everyone know it
I get your school of thought and I think YES! It is highly underrated.

Say a deaf person from Mexico and a deaf person from Russia meet at JFK International Airport, but neither can read or write in the other language - would they be able to communicate using Sign Language?
