  • Wow. I’m so inspired by this workshop of using visual vernacular. I can relate to this 100% because I learnt South African Sign language and I was nervous about how I’d communicate with Deaf people in China since the signs and culture is all different. I really thinking visual vernacular is amazing and look forward to one day attending this kind of workshop to help me communicate with Deaf people around the world regardless of their sign language. I think its amazing how Drama can also be involved in this vernacular. It’s an amazing Art. I love it.
