American Sign Language
Sign language is not just about hands and fingers, it’s also a complex and unique language spoken by millions of people around the world. The words are communicated through gestures and expressions, with body and facial movements being part of the grammar. It has no traditional written form and is purely visual. As with any other living language, sign language is constantly evolving and replacing old words and phrases with new ones. Not all people are aware that, like spoken language, sign language also has puns and accents.
Although American Sign Language (ASL) can be learned independently with the help of media and textbooks, learners still need face-to-face practice with ASL speakers to make sure that they are signing correctly. Of course, an ASL speaker doesn’t equate to a certified ASL interpreter. There are several state and national certifications that lead to becoming a certified ASL interpreter.
ASL interpreters working with Bromberg are all nationally and/or state certified, and have many years of experience working with the Deaf community. We provide top-quality ASL interpretation on-site and via Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) nationwide.
