Do you think that high schools should have sign language classes? And why.

Report as

Yes, I do.
It's not a difficult language to learn, and it's always a great skill to have with the language becoming more popular.

it's not difficult to learn, but it can be difficult to remember. well, still easier than German or French or Spanish.

When you don't use it you lose it. I use it almost daily, so I suppose it may be different with me.

I do use it!! heck, my family members complain because when I'm talking, I'm usually signing too. my sister's caught me sleeping before, she told me the next morning that when she came in my hand was moving like nuts, through the ASL alphabet.

I highly doubt that.

I believe they should so people can talk to deaf people. I feel that is a highly important language for people to learn.

It is a good thing to know. I think it should be offered as an elective. I was so glad when I was taught sign language, but I did it while in college.....and more so because it intrigued me. Since learning it, I have used it many times and several times when I least expected to.

yes because some people have to deal with being deaf and can't talk why should they be left out

Sure, there are more people that are deaf than most think. Also some people go deaf and hearing aids can not help. the nerves connected to the inner ear become damaged along with the tiny hairs that are connected to them and pickup the vibrations. Lip reading is not easy.

I think yes, because people should be able to communicate. and if somebody can't hear, then... yeah. and on the flip side, it's kinda fun for some. for teens like myself, (I have AS, which is on the autism spectrum) it is not only fun but it helps with motor skills, both fine motor and gross motor. so it's fun and helpful too. and it's not difficult to learn. might be difficult to remember sometimes, but that's a whole different story.

That would be actually cool.
My first job out of school was McDonald's and I remember a group of def people coming in and they wrote down what they wanted, and then started speaking when the one writing down the order got something wrong.
If I could have known sign language, it would have been so easy.
They actually got into a little fight there.

No political view, religious belief, ethnicity attacks disabilities.
Why learn French in sixth grade?
I never understood that?

Yes, they should teach that actually at a much younger age.

Yes. There are many kids and adults who cannot hear and try to have a normal life yet can't because they can't communicate with the rest of the world... It would be great if the new generations can learn sign language
