TRUE OR FALSE: Is Sign Language universal (the same in every country)?
The answer is FALSE.
Yeah, Singapore has its own Sign Language. It’s called Singapore Sign Language. In short form, it is SgSL, not SSL (Shanghainese Sign Language). There is no official definition, unlike ASL’s. We still wait for our national body to make announcement about its official definition. We had our community discussion in early 2019.

American Sign Language has its over 200 years of history. Our SgSL is established and developed since the early 1950s. It had its influences from SSL, ASL and SEE2 (Signing Exact English 2) because of national education policies and language policies. Now we develop our locally generated sign vocabulary for our local culture and food.

If you have anything to add in or to ask for further clarification, you can message me @deaflilygoh and the private chat is created for you. Will add you there. 🀟🏻

Thank you for participating the TRUE/FALSE quiz. The answer is FALSE.

Shouting at anyone is considered rude; talking louder to a deaf person is no different. Find other ways to communicate with the deaf; writing helps. Hmm, learning sign language could be fun, and it will bring you unique experiences when interacting with Deaf.

There existed two schools for the Deaf in the 1950s-1990s; namely
1) Singapore School for the Deaf, and
2) Canossian School (formerly Canossian School for the Deaf -> Canossian School for the Hearing Impaired). Which one do you see these schools as?

TRUE OR FALSE: Most deaf people can read or write English, as well as their hearing peers.
Thank you for participating this TRUE/FALSE quiz. The answer is FALSE.

This is really surprising when you chose TRUE for that statement.

Based on the current global statistics, not many deaf can read/write English well. Learning English is like learning a new, second language for some deaf people. Some only have attained a basic level of English comprehension; some struggle to understand written English, especially in highly stressful or emergency situations. A sign language interpreter may be needed to facilitate communication between deaf and hearing worlds.
