Is American Sign Language used worldwide? Or is there a different kind of sign language for different countries?
There are many different sign languages used around the world. Check these sites for more information.
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. To add to the wonderful sites Ms.Sue provided, here is the main site for information on ASL:
There are various different sign languages. While every single country does not necessarily have their own sign language, American Sign Language is only used in the United States and most of Canada (except Quebec). Examples of other sign languages include, Japanese Sign Language, Irish Sign Language, Mexican Sign Language, Italian Sign Language, etc. These are not the same as ASL.
