"In addition, there are so many positive reasons to learn American Sign Language in 2022. First, it's key for communicating with deaf or hard of hearing individuals. But it also gives your brain a workout, introduces you to a new culture and community, gives you a new way to meet people and make new friends, and it can be used all the time!"
