Abstract

As a student of American Sign Language, I have had the opportunity to take many ASL classes in different levels, and a variety of subjects. Every time it is the same story, I walk into the classroom and see maybe three men in a class of twenty people. I became curious, why is this? Does our gender affect our ability to learn language? That is what I hope to explore: the role of gender in how and why we learn a second language, specifically a visual language such as ASL.
