Thomas Gallaudet traveled to Europe in search of a way to teach the deaf and mute. He was specifically attempting to learn the ways of the Braidwoods, who had been teaching the deaf in England through the use of aural-oral methods. However, the Braidwoods refused to divulge their secrets, so he went to France and there was introduced to a French monk, who had been learning a manual language from poor deaf children, and then adapting and expanding it into a viable translation of the spoken French. Gallaudet brought this idea back to the US and implemented it (along with Laurent Clerc, a deaf French man) in the American School for the Deaf.
