    You can go into deaf education or become a sign language interpreter. I believe that what this lady is doing would be considered deaf education or even just having a degree in American Sign Language. Deaf education is teaching the Deaf in like school settings. Interpreters interpret English to ASL for the Deaf. Having a degree in ASL would allow you to be an ASL teacher.

    i grew to become into taught that ASL (American sign) is extra reflective of "deaf lifestyle" - utilising area & locators, as an occasion, to propose repeating words, tenses... while ESL (English sign) is a demonstration-by utilising-sign (virtually interlinear) translation of spoken language, and is considered slightly a placed down by utilising some human beings interior the deaf community. apparently, my ASL dictionary interprets into many distinctive (spoken) languages, on an identical time as my ESL does no longer. additionally, bear in strategies that particular places have distinctive idiomatic expressions - I see some "off-shade" signs and indicators utilized by utilising young ones in faculties in manhattan that the youngsters interior the Bronx could under no circumstances ever understand.
