    We speak English, French, Spanish and American Sign Language. I don't speak French, Spanish nor ASL very often so it usually takes me a week or two to be comfortable with these languages.

    kzarah, where did you learn sign language? I'm thinking of taking lessons in a few years. this year I will continue with basic french (soon I hope) and either basic italian or spanish (for a trip). which language is your favorite? Mine is Italian, but I also love French but find it tres difficile! (compared to Italian)

    I just learned a new word on Martha Stewart: Pantyho. This is one leg of a pair of pantyhose.

    I learned ASL , (American Sign Language) when I was a little boy of about 7 years old. A neighbor lady was deaf. She attended an oral school, (oral schools are schools that teach lip reading and speach to deaf as oppossed to a manual school that teaches total communication which is lip reading speach and sign language.) Julie, the deaf lady, learned sign language from her husband who had gone to a manual school. I told her that I wanted to learn sign language so she taught me. Julie tutored deaf children in math and science. They would go to her house for tutoring and after their lessons we would play together. We had a Hearing and Speach Center in my home town. There, hearing parents of deaf children would study sign language. They would bring their children with them and while their parents were learning ASL, I would play with their deaf children. There was a shortage of hearing people who know ASL in our community. When, I was 14 years old I began to work as an ASL interpreter. I did this until I was 23. Then, I moved to California. Throughout my life many of my friends were deaf. There was a time in my life when all of my friends were deaf. So, I guess you could say that I am bi-ultural and that ASL is my second language. Continue with French. French is my favorite language. I rarely use it so I have lost a lot, but it is easy to brush-up.

    Kzarah, that's wonderful. I don't know anyone who is deaf but for some reason I've always been interested in sign language and braille and wondered if I could learn. I found some schools that give sign language for adults but they all seem to have only 2 semesters worth (probably meeting only once or twice a week for 4 months) so I guess they just teach you the basics and the rest you do on your own. At any rate, I will probably try it in a few years if I can ever improve in French.
