Sign Language course

Rocket is another Language school – and if you’re looking to learn a language perhaps it’s worth considering Rocket Language as well as FluentU.  But there is a specific reason we wanted to tell you about Rocket Language….

They offer something I haven’t seen in any of the other online language learning schools:

A Sign Language course.

The recorded history of sign language in Western societies starts in the 17th century, as a visual language or method of communication, although references to forms of communication using hand gestures date back as far as 5th century BC Greece. 

Sign language is composed of a system of conventional gestures, mimic, hand signs and finger spelling, plus the use of hand positions to represent the letters of the alphabet.  Signs can also represent complete ideas or phrases, not only individual words.

Most sign languages are natural languages, different in construction from oral languages used in proximity to them, and are employed mainly by deaf people in order to communicate.
