May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

Back in college we had a choice on which foreign language we could take, but it had to be 8 credits worth. That meant either 3 classes of regular language (like Spanish, French, etc) or just two of Sign Language. I opted for sign language. It ended up being a really cool language to learn […]
