Imagine how exciting it would be if you could communicate with every one of all nationalities. That’s exactly the case of people using sign language who shares the same language beyond boundaries.

Today September 23 is International Sign Language Day 2020, so we want to show you how to express your love by using this wonderful language.

According to the United Nations, there are nearly 72 million deaf people globally but most of them live in developing countries. In fact, these communities use different sign languages (up to 300 types by most recent calculation) but they are not divided by a national boundary.

To embrace the deaf culture, the UN General Assembly has appointed September 23 annually as the International Sign Language Day. This is also to raise public awareness of the role of this language besides human rights of deaf communities.

The reason why UN picked September 23 as the day for sign language is that it marks the establishment of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) in 1951. The first International Sign Language Day ever was celebrated in 2018.
