Daenerys Posted April 20, 2017 Share Posted April 20, 2017 The thread about languages for a Victorianist got me thinking about my own language test. Has anyone ever heard of fulfilling the language requirement by using American Sign Language? I know some, as a good friend of mine is deaf, and it's related to my research area, which is disability studies (20th Century American lit). Thoughts?? I am not "fluent" in sign language but I could get there pretty quickly with tutoring from my friend. I think I could become competent in it a lot faster than I could in German, which I skated through in undergrad, and which is only relevant to my field to the extent that I could read about Hitler's eugenics program. (Ugh.) Thanks! brontebitch 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
