The "sign language cafe & restaurant" which visitors can experience sign language freely while eating and drinking will open for the first time in the school festival of the Tottori School for the Deaf in western Japan on October 5.
The students are enthusiastic about how to get a visitor interested in sign language, such as writing the pictures of signs on the menu. They say they want everybody to enjoy learning or using sign language.
The theme of the school festival is "Be connected." The student representatives explain, "Since everybody wants to communicate happily by sign language regardless of hearing ability, we would like to make this event spread sign language."
