I've been interested in learning more
about sign language ever since I learned the motions to the song "Jesus
Loves Me." To that end, I joined the sign language club in high school,
purposefully watched the TV shows on PBS with a sign language
interpreter, and took free classes in college just to learn more. I even
taught my children basic signs when they were babies, and encouraged
them to watch educational sign language shows as well. Maybe
you've just become interested in sign language, or maybe you want to
introduce your family or students to this form of communication. Either
way, check out the some of the great resources listed in THIS ARTICLE, which can help you learn sign language in the privacy of your own home.
