"HI, MY name is Kim Mi-sung. And I am..." Can you introduce yourself like this in silence? With no words and no voice, you can express what you want with only your hands. Where? In "Sign Language" class.

   The "Sign Language" (UCG1120/ three-credits/ elective general education subject) aims at helping students understand the auditory disabled people. The course focuses on beginners who have never learned sign language. Professors in charge have teaching experiences in the school of deaf-mute. The grades are evaluated by exam (50%), presentation (30%) and participation (20%).

   Though sign language has no sound, this class is filled with happy sounds due to various activities. Basically, students learn basic finger signs and expressions with a main text book. According to it, students make stories, sing songs and play performances within groups.

   Through this class, students get chances to think about the physically challenged. Choi Eun-ah (Soph., Area of Engin.) says, "I was only interested in learning a new language initially. However, as time went by, I could understand the deaf-mute themselves." To these students, "Sign language is the same as Korean or English. I hope students understand the physically challenged are not strange people," says Kim Sam-chan (Visiting Professor, the Principal of Hangook Woojin School).

   Today, we do not realize the difficulties of deaf-mutes well. To understand them better, more people need to know sign language in society. How about taking a first step to understand them in "Sign Language" course? Soon, you will be able to say hello kindly to a deaf-mute beside you.
