We excluded the deaf/hard of hearing community, the autistic community, the blind community, and so on.
I don’t know about you guys but when I think about learning a new language, one of the first thoughts I have is “man, that sounds like a lot of work” or “It would be so great to learn but everyone I know speaks English anyway, what’s the point?” or some of us want to learn a new language but we just don’t have the time. Well, I am here to tell you that sign language is the way to go and the best part is that it's not even that hard to learn.
