The older two kids are learning American Sign Language, ASL, for their foreign language in our home-school program, and have been doing quite well. While they are at it, the youngest tries her best to learn it as well. She now has her spoken ABC’s down, but is still working on the signing part…


  • Did you know that ASL is officially recognized as a foreign language?
  • ASL is the fourth most spoken language used in the United States.
  • The roots of ASL can be traced back to 18th century France.
  • Each nation has their own version of sign language, such as German Sign Language, and they are not the same.
  • There are other forms of sign language such as Pigeon and SEE (Signed Exact English).
