Do you know how to spell your name in sign language? About 1.5 million deaf and hard of hearing people live in the Netherlands. Many of them rely on sign language to interpret the world. But whether you can hear or not, you too use sign language more often than you think. Thumbs up? All good! But if you use your middle finger, you suddenly mean something completely different. The meaning of some gestures also differs per region or culture. From the Dutch ‘lekker’ wave to ‘peace’, we all use gestures.
