Eva Longoria learns sign language

London: Actress Eva Longoria has learnt sign language to communicate with her deaf fans.

"I`ve had a lot of deaf people who have bought my book and I`ve been able to talk to them about what my favourite recipe is and what to cook," a website quoted Longorio as saying

The 36-year-old recently launched her own cook book Eva`s Kitchen.

Longoria, is also prepared to contribute in various charities to help people with disabilities and from deprived social groups.

"I always think it`s important to bring awareness to minority or a minority population and whether you`re Latino or black or a woman or deaf, it still falls into that category of needing support from people who aren`t normally around this type of population. I come from a diverse background of people with special needs, because of my sister, so I`m happy to bring my voice to this cause," she said.
