Albert Abdul-Rashid, a young man in Ghana has been constantly mocked on social media because of what many people see as a habit of using English sentence structures wrongly.

One of the most recent incidents of that happened when he made a post about the death of Dr Daniel Heward-Mills, the son of Bishop Dag Heward Mills.

As people started laughing once more, individuals who are well-informed about how people with hearing impairments express themselves, came to educate the public on how 'normal' his use of the English language is.

"Emmanuel Addo swift observation. After reading it I got to know he 'might' be a hearing impaired guy. As u rightly put it, that's how they construct their sentences. U did well."

Emmanuel Addo indicated:

"Kennedy McDonald, I am a speech and language therapy student and I also took some private lessons in the use of the Ghanaian Sign Language. Some of us are too quick to judge but a little digging could open our eyes to support rather than discourage."

Selina Nana Celine stated:

"Good job done for your attention to details. I didn’t even know they had a different sentence structure (I have added to knowledge today)."
