When you learn a visual language you are developing a Sign Language Roses shirt – not auditory sounds. I’m a retired interpreter and it is impossible to simultaneously process two different languages especially if one based on visual concepts and the is base on sounds. This is one of those questions that have no definitive answer. Each person has a variance in aptitudes. For example, my wife can play the piano. It is easy for her. For me it is simply impossible. My brain is not wired that way. I also poured myself into the learning process. I met with deaf people regularly. I practiced at home. I learned with my wife and together we practiced. I made it a priority. The thing that I learned that was the most profound is that sign language is not just teaching your hands how to form shapes to express a vocabulary. It is a language with all of the same challenges as learning any language has.

Best Sign Language Roses shirt
There is the syntax, nuance, and Sign Language Roses shirt. Sitting with a book or online videos to learn it is simply not going to get you to the finish line. You must expose yourself to the deaf community if you ever want to truly be able to communicate in signs. The Deaf community is great. I can’t say enough about what a fantastic experience it is to have Deaf friends, and know the closeness the binds Deaf people together, which they are willing to share, if you don’t come along with a lot of ideas about wanting to help, or change things, or promote SEE, or generally have a “Hearing knows best” mentality.
