      Thanks for your comment on my post about friendship being so important in life.. sometimes I think they are the bottom line in helping with my healing, and in my life itself.

      Hi DGN,

      How are you?

      I was curious about what languages you speak and is Arabic one of them? Where did you learn them? Have you travelled much?

        Hi Leanne,

        As for languages, I speak all Western European languages and a couple of Eastern European ones. I grew up all across Europe moving every few years.

        I only know a few basic Arabic words and signs. I am definitely not done learning languages and cultures.

        How did you learn the Arabic you know?

        I'm British, but I live in the UAE. Most people speak English here and most expats don't know a word of Arabic but I think it's rude not to at least learn the basics, you know?

        I can have basic conversations and the locals respect you more when they know you've made an effort. Can't read it though, my husband can read some.

        I completely understand what you mean. I've noticed that as well that the majority of people living in a country for work do not try to learn a language. I don't understand it or at best find it relatively confusing. I have the same view of respect for users of other languages. I can at least try. Plus in my case I simply am an extremely curious person and love languages.

      My phone won't lete commet on the post...strange.
      Anyways...
      I do know ASL! I started learning in about 7 or 8 years ago, and now I'm going to college to do something with it. Maybe become a teacher for the Deaf, or an interpreter. I'm not really sure yet.

      That's really awesome what you're doing for Deaf people in other countries.

        My future plans may include some things in Europe, but luckily there is a smaller group of people who have begun trying to set up a European University for the Deaf. I'd like to teach there and be a part time faculty member. I am and want to continue being involved with the European Union of the Deaf.

      Hey!
      So this is really random and kind of weird, so I apologize.
      I was wondering if you use ASL and your main form of communication?

        Hey Murphy!

        Not a random question at all and definitely not weird... No need to apologize. Yes, ASL is my main form of communication and has been for the past 10+ years. Do you know ASL?

        Prior to moving here, I lived in numerous other countries. Not all countries are as accepting of Deaf people and sign language. Moving all over and attending schools I have learned lots of languages and had never had exposure to Deaf people or sign language.

        Now I am seeking out those connections, learning the sign languages, and trying to make a difference in how people in those countries view Deaf people. It's definitely an adventure!

        Outback Calling is the title of the book. Not sure if we are allowed to say it on here. It is avaiable on Amazon and it is about outback Australia
