Deaf people join groups of people all over the world who must manage two languages, one of which is a dominant-world  language and the other a minority, often unfavored language. In tue United States and Canada, Deaf people who use ASL as a preferred everyday language interact, often intimately, with individuals who use English - hearing teacher, relatives, and co-workers. Deaf people have many opportunities to use only ASL, but rarely can they avoid contact with English. They are more likely to have parents to use English than parents who use ASL. They are more likely to have teachers who are native speakers of English. Many have co-workers who speak only Enlish.
