Because of brain plasticity changes during early childhood, children who have not acquired a first language in the early years might never be completely fluent in any language. An alternative to speech-exclusive approaches to language acquisition for deaf children exists in the use of sign languages such as Sistem Isyarat Bahasa Indonesia (SIBI), where acquiring a sign language is subject to the same time constraints of spoken language development. This study is intended to find out the answer to the following questions : (1) Which are educational method and communication method used in learning English for Anacusis learners, (2) How well do Anacusis learners acquire English as a foreign language, (3) What problems do Anacusis learners face in learning English.
