Asl- American Sign Language... The reason why we call it America doesn't mean that it first started in America. It first started in France then moved to the UK and America. Not sure where else it might be. But you can not just learn ASL and try to do FSL because they are different and have different signs.
Am in ASL 2 this year and it is really easy with me because most of my friends are in it lol. In Sign Language they also teach you Deaf Culture and what to say and write as them. They Gloss (Means that when they write they write like this... HELLO ME NAME fs-T-O-M WHO YOU?) which is different then English because their gloss is also the way they sign.
I don't want to keep on going because am a proud in that class! Rawr...
