ETJ Saitama:

Japanese/American Spoken Sign Language

Date: Sunday, January 15th, 2012 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Martin Paul

Martin Paul will briefly explain code-switching and code-blending, using Spoken Japanese / Japanese Sign Language (JSL) and Spoken English / American Sign Language (ASL). Communication between hearing and deaf people will be discussed, while touching on some aspects of Deaf Culture. Martin will also demonstrate classroom applications of the above, using greetings, apologies, numbers, puzzles, and songs in order to show that the addition of a sign language component in any activity can add a little excitement to the exercise.
