Tottori Prefecture to hold a sign language class for beginners for free

December 10, 2013

In accordance with the first sign language ordinance in Japan having been enforced in October, Tottori Prefecture will start a sign language class (beginning level) for people in the prefecture on December 18.

A Deaf person also will participate in the class and speaks about the experiences in everyday life, etc.

The class will be offered a total of 12 times till March, next year, and will not be a continuation one but independent.

A prior application is required although it is no charge.

A prefectural person in charge says, "People will feel close once they learn sign language a little. We hope as many people as possible to learn sign language."
