First ever ‘Signing Store’

The first ever coffee shop for the deaf and hard-of-hearing people appeared in Washington. It is noteworthy that all workers at the point are fluent in American Sign Language (“ASL”). It is reported that the first guests of the coffee shop will be able to order their favorite drink and chat with the barista starting from this week!

Moreover, among the staff, there are both native speakers and sign language interpreters.

It is worth mentioning that the new coffee shop opened near Gallaudet University. This is the only educational institution in the world where all educational programs are adapted for people with hearing impairment.

employees themselves admitted that often hearing-impaired and deaf people have difficulty finding work, and for many of them the appearance of such a coffee shop has become a great job opportunity.

Surely, any of the guests can visit this point, but first, it’s worth learning a few phrases to communicate with other people.
