WHAT IS TALK SIGN?

‘’Let us Talk about Sign and Talk in Sign’’

 

We all need to communicate with each other. Imagine how lonely it must be when you don’t understand what the people around you are saying and, no-one understands what you are trying to say? This is how people who are Deaf feel, around those who don’t understand South African Sign Language (SASL).

 

We need to make Sign Language South Africa’s 12th official language, not only for people who are Deaf but for everyone’s benefit.

 

Please support the Talk Sign campaign and help us promote Sign Language.
