I'm not sure how you would learn another language though, i know you could learn it 'written' but to speak/lip read it would be almost impossible?? or would it??
I am currently learning Japanese. I can learn it written but as for speaking/lip reading I would have to have a lot of one-on-one time with someone so I can learn the tonal pronouncement and such.
I should start learn how to read and write in Polish because that could help my genealogy research further.
Believe it or not, we don't exactly get treated with respect and care here. Sure we have the ADA laws but when it comes to occupation positions and such, we still get discriminated.
Does the school teach the kids sign language or is it a oral school where no sign language is allowed?
