Sign language is as old as humanity. Since always, men communicate by gestures in various situations, whether deaf or hearing. However, it is 16th centurythat the first educational methods around this language were created, building the foundations of these "Manual exchanges" we know today.
Rarely learned in school, this form of communication ensures all the functions performed by the spoken languages… including the insults. It did not take more to inspire the American YouTube channel Cut who had the fun idea to invite a small group of deaf and hard of hearing in front of his camera for a small learning big words.
A project unusual who, behind his side amusing and necessarily a little reducer, offers visibility to ASL (American Sign Language) and of course all other sign languages. View by more than 4 million people in 4 months, this video shows us another facet of a language that seems complex and accessible at the same time ... and that shows that certain gestures are very, very universal.
