    I started watching the first five minutes and an hour passed. This is excellent information. When I was a cashier I was approched by a deaf woman asking for directions and I totally messed up on what she understood and how I could speak with her. I wish I had known this then. I'll just have to do better next time.

    I pray the Lord lead us to more and more appreciate the value and need, to encourage the rights of the deaf culture as a gift to all cultures, especially for the benefit of deaf children!

    Hey, i'm actually getting my B.A. in interpreting right now. It's very important in educational interpreting to have 2 interpreters to make sure that the message is conveyed very clearly. If the speaking interpreter misses something, it's the second interpreters job to tell them what they missed. Then they alternate every few minutes to ensure they one doesn't become overly exhausted and start to lose clarity in their interpreting. hope this was helpful.

    Hi, I'm self-learning ASL. I'm kinda upset, bcs I hv no deaf friends to talk with and it's hard to improve in my signing. I hope to find new friends. Thanks for the video.

    Hi. My name is David Barban. I am a special education teacher since 1984. I startrd working at the age of 20 in Los Angeles. One day, my director came to us, and said:"We are going to have some deaf-mute children". Therefore, you must learn some ASL. I learnt 8 years of ASL in Santa monica college. I was born in Paris, and decided to learn french sign language. When my mom died, I came back to Israel, learnt hebrew-hebrew sign language. You are right in everything you say. I gree with you 100%.

    Thank you for this powerful witness to life! I am "physically challenged" and know a little about being "different". People fear what they don't understand a lot of times. I applaud your work. I could understand you a little, but you sign much too fast for me. I am now taking ASL classes online with Dr. Bill Vicars (who is deaf) @ "Lifeprint". (I am on lesson 12) He is an awesome teacher & I suggest anyone with interest in ASL to watch 1 of his lessons. Thank you again!

    I'm hearing. I am in ASL classes and I absolutely love it. I really liked this presentation. It really helps the hearing people understand Deaf culture better. I think that ASL is a beautiful language and its a beautiful culture as well.

    way to go mom. i am happy that you put your foot down at the dr. why should we have have to get coclier implants when we don't want it. my belief is that if the child is born hard of hearing and the doctor told me that my child must get it done. i would say screw that i want to let my child live in a happy life. when she or he gets older and want to get it done then it's totally up to her or him end of story. thats my opinion. im happy you put your foot down. i'm hh myself and i don't want that.

    Right, that's true, no matter what language (spoken or signed), you need two interpreters in academic and professional settings, small conversational situations not so much! I've interpreted from Spanish to English and English to Spanish..and it is quite exhausting! And the first time I tried..it gave me a headache!

    Good for you! Our family made the same decision 7 years ago and have never regretted it. Want proof? Go to the Metro Deaf School website and watch the videos – these are HAPPY kids!

    I am hearing (However, I can't speak). I learned quite a bit watching this video, some of it stunned me a bit. I am often shocked at just how much I don't know! Thank you for sharing this!

    Listening to the lady speak is a bit annoying cuz I hear another woman whispering as to what to say.  Why cant the other lady just speak in the microphone instead of relaying what is being signed??!?

    I loved this video. When he said "in closing", I thought, no, already?! I really enjoyed this video. It was very informative and I like how strong he is. As a hearing person, I would love to interact with the deaf community. I have many reasons as to why I want to interact with the deaf community. I have never wanted to know just one group of people. I hope one day I have the pleasure of meeting a deaf person. I honestly do.

    Personally I think the Cochlear Implant is amazing. However it should really be up to the person who is deaf whether they want to give it a try or not. I don't really see deaf people needing to be "fixed". It's their option whether to get implants later or not. If a deaf person told me "I'm going to try these implants" I would say "that's cool". If they said "I'm going to remain the way I am" I would still say "that's cool". I like to think I'm an open minded person and try to place myself in others' shoes for certain views. Also, as a side thought, sign language is just cool looking.

    Great video. I have taken some culture classes. I found the interpreter that was from Mass very annoying. She was not fluid in her speech. The other lady was great.

    Wow. The word Thank you is not strong enough to express my appreciation for this video. I have recently adopted a Deaf daughter and I need to know how to communicate and relate. This is so extremely helpful!

    as an interpreter that has been out of the profession for quite sometime, I can appreciate the hard work that the team interpreters go through. I would like to start interpreting again and have begun the long road back to this marvelous profession.
