The sign language lecture has started
with the bureau chief meeting.
The Nagano Prefecture Sign Language Regulation concluded in March was carried out in April.
The prefecture held a bureau chief meeting on April 4, and the staff of the Bureau of Person with Disabilities Support who can interpret served as a lecturer.
About 20 people including Governor Abe Morikazu, two lieutenant governors and bureau chiefs learned basic sign language such as "Hello," "Thank you very much".
They will learn necessary words used in administrative business, a person name and an expression of a place for about 10 minutes every month.
Governor showed sign language right away at a regular press conference after the meeting, "Everyone, hello." He said, I'd like to make sure that I master sign language and use it."
