Why study American Sign Language?
Not only is learning a second language is good for the brain, but learning American Sign Language might come in handy throughout your daily life. For example, if you work in the schools, you are likely to encounter a student who is deaf or hard of hearing.Hearing loss increases with age so, if you become a first responder or work with the elderly population, you might need sign language to communicate with the elderly population and it could be an important skill to have especially in an emergency.
What's the difference in our mouth when we make a p and a b sound?
We do exactly the same thing with our lips. We press our lips together and make a "popping" noise. The difference is, we turn on our voice box to make the b "noisy". The p sound is "quiet" because we do not turn on our voice box.
