>> Rachel: Language is how humans communicate with each other. Some languages are spoken, like the English that I am speaking right now. Other languages are visual, and use your hands and your body to speak them, like American Sign Language. But what all languages have in common is that we use them to express ideas, information and feelings.


Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back too.
