I'd prolly be called JSL, seeing as ASL means American Sign Language
Unless it was a hybrid class?

You do have a point. I get acronyms mixed up quite easily.
I don't think I have encountered an acronym for Japanese sign language though. It's just sign language, or rather, literally translated it'd be "hand language".

@Rubie: Do you know which Indian languages your friend speaks? I'm curious (as a Indian studies graduate) and there's a ton of them :D

Yeah, I don't think I'd be able to learn all the stuff I don't want to learn. I just want the neccessary skills. I was really mostly frustrated and stressed about the things I didn't want to learn. But now I realize I've also been slacking with the languages themselves :mcheh:

I've learned Japanese up to even B1 level but then I had a huge break and I'm back to basics. And I can't even speak XD Same goes for Hindi, I almost completely forgot it and I'm like @jacob with Korean. I keep learning and recalling the language by apps etc but it's never enough. for example now I'm focusing on Spanish because I have quite some contact with this language at work but there's no time in the day for me to also learn all the languages I want to learn like Japanese, Hindi, Swedish.
I think just apps and practice without speaking and much grammar is not my learning style. I might actually need a teacher.

@mem maybe someday I will ask you to translate things for me. Even with just one language you have more possibilities than, well, anyone else I know :D
:mcgasp: :mcgasp: :mcgasp: *is flattered* I need to get to the translation courses then :mcargh: I will not fail you, senpai :qwhee: *gets a heart attack*

@Kuuki: That reminds me of how I was learning English! I used to poorly translate songs I liked and I sang along etc. It was so much fun. Maybe I should try doing that with the languages I want to learn (or re-learn). Had this idea for a while but there's always something. :mcsweat:


sign languae: I was wondering how big a difference can be between those languages? Is it as big a gap as between any other language, like Russian vs. German or more like Russian vs. Polish or does it depend? I'm clueless about sign languages. the first thought is "they should invent one sign language for all" but then the reality is these people come from different countries, cultures, mentalities so it all translates into sign language.
Idk if anyone is able to answer my questions but thought I'd throw it in here just because XD

@Kit: mechanical translation of languages like Japanese might be super innaccurate because of the kanji signs meanings and readings , it's too complicated for the machine to pick the right context. Hence we end up with horse placentas XD

@memoriam: For Japanese you have to learn all the hiragana/katakana again, but in sign language, which you wouldn't have to do for European languages and I guess it would be the same for every language that has a different alphabet.

More broadly though yes it's very different, I've even read somewhere that even ASL and British Sign Language are so different most of the signs aren't the same despite both countries speaking English.
I've been taught that sign language developed first between smaller communities so that makes for a lot of differences even in the same language.

Oh yeah, ASL and BSL are very different
Around Rochester, NY there's something like a dozen dialects of ASL

Wow, that's surprising :mcgasp: especially with British and american english, you'd think they'd be more similar.
Haha, I'm so easy to get my mind blown :mclaugh:

Well speaking verbal-wise, isn't American and British vocabulary fairly different in some cases? There's also slang, and items are described differently. Also spelling in some cases came be different, like an extra letter or something.

Yes, which is awfully confusing for people learning English btw.
But even so, if you learn British English (which is my case) you still understand American English, which isn't always the case with sign language apparently.
