New Zealand Sign Language

New Zealand Sign Language

On Thursday Cheryl Coughlan from Van Ash Deaf Education Centre  came to teach us NZSL .We learnt numbers, colours and the alphabet.  Cheryl only has 3 students and a teacher aid. Some deaf people have sign names . Sign names help deaf people say a person's name instead of fingerspelling. There’s over 22 thousand people who are deaf in the world.
