California School for the Deaf

On Wednesday we spent the morning visiting various different classes at the California School for the Deaf where they teach children from age 18 months to 22. Besides sharing some Japanese culture with them, the other purpose was to teach them some Japanese sign language. The children seemed to be very excited learning how, for example, "good morning" is done so differently. There is a lot more bowing involved and in the end they were doing the sign language and bowing!
