Languages are a great way to explore a culture. From the food to the dance, if you speak the language or don’t, it’s going to be a great time. Experiencing something new can be scary at times, the unsureness of it all. There are, however, those moments that will take you by surprise.
Caleb Francis is a post-high school graduate who, like many, have decided to take on the flourishing possibilities of fast food. Like many high schoolers, his first job may not have been glamorous, but it kept him from standing in place. Caleb was always hard to keep still, especially when it came to diving in head first into his first job at Taco Bell.
While many were learning languages such as French, Spanish, and German, Caleb decided to go a different route. You never know a skill until you need it, and lucky for Caleb, his passion for American Sign Language showed one faithful day during a rush. While many around him were scrambling to make and bag orders, Caleb had noticed a gentleman approaching the line.
There were no words spoken between the two. The gentleman responded with a few movements of his hands. At this moment, Caleb realized his language skill had finally come into play! He proudly held his own, conversing with the man in his primary language. A simple order was done in mere moments thanks to Caleb’s quick reaction and studious passion towards American Sign Language.
He was glad he could help the man and was thrilled to do so without paper and pen. To speech to another in their dominant language can be a bit intimidating. However, as Caleb demonstrated, there are no barriers for what an avid learner can do to serve.
