We will be starting a “Meetup” program for people who viewed the sign language video program that began in July 2021.While reviewing the contents of the video series #1 to #4, you will practice sign language face-to-face with the instructor and participants on Zoom.
As well as learning and experiencing the basics of the visual/physical language called sign language, how about giving thought to deaf culture and communication with deaf people? First-timers are very welcome to apply.
