How long did it take you to learn sign language?

Learning ASL is not easier than learning spoken French or any other spoken language. It takes at least six 3-credit ASL courses over the span of 2-3 years to attain a beginning-intermediate skill. To attain an intermediate-fluent skill, it takes another 2 years in the ASL/English interpretation training.

Similarly one may ask, is there a high demand for sign language interpreters?

Demand for Sign Language Interpreters Expected to Rise Nearly 50% The demand for Sign Language Interpreters is expected to rise 46% from 2012 to 2022, an increase of 29,300 jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Scott Community College offers an American Sign Language/English Interpreter Program.

What kind of education is required to be a sign language interpreter?

While most employers only require experience and certification, formal training programs in ASL or interpreter training can help prepare you for a career in sign language interpretation. Although certificate and associate degree programs are most common, bachelor's and graduate degree programs are also available.
