DSL lol. My friends were with my on learning Danish for a while, then they starting learning ASL (American Sign Language). I told them that we were much more likely to run into a native Danish speaker then we are to run into a deaf person (which is less than 1% of the US population). They didn't like this statement. I have no friendsXDXDXD I hoped you laughed when reading this :D

Naive Danish speakers are significantly less than 1% of the US population. I've met plenty of deaf people, and I could really make use of asl now that I work in food service, but never met a native Danish speaker.
