What is Sign Language in ASL?

Sign language is used by deaf and hard-of-hearing people to communicate. Instead of sound, it uses hand motions, facial expressions, and body movements for communication. Different regions of the world have different forms. In America, we use the ASL, the American Sign Language.

American Sign Language (ASL) is commonly used in the US and English-speaking parts of other countries in North America. In regards to the most used languages in the US, you may be surprised to discover American Sign Language ranks fourth. Many universities accept ASL as a foreign language and you can study for a bachelor’s or master’s degree in ASL.

It is estimated between 500,000 and 2 million Americans can communicate using ASL.

History

Onsego created a new GED Calculator course

Steve Gory is the founder of Onsego, and he’s also an education strategist. In this post, Steve talks about why Onsego has created a new course that works with the TS-30 XS GED Scientific Calculator.

Steve explains: “About a year ago, my sister asked me if I could help one of her friends with preparing for the Math portion of the GED test. My sister has a job in the entertainment industry, and many of her “friends” are artists.

When I first met my sister’s friend, that appeared to be true. Her “friend” was actually an up-and-coming singer-songwriter who was looking to earn her GED diploma.

She was called Nina, and she had already passed three out of the four GED subtests. On the Math test, however, she couldn’t get a passing score though she had already tried four times. I gave Nina access to Onsego’s GED prep course, and over the next months, we had several Zoom meetings.
