Sophia Sign Language Club Tenohira
- Club & Circles
Tenohira promotes sign language through sign language plays and songs.
The three main goals are: to learn the signs used in daily conversation through study groups and the performance of sign language plays and songs; to think about sign language through learning it and by interacting with the hearing impaired; and to treat sign language as a language and think about the creation of a harmonious society.
Tenohira’s main activities are a study group to learn sign language through enjoyable games such as shiritori (a word-chain game), telephone game, and other games, and holding sign language plays and sign language choruses for expressing in sign language.
By promoting sign language and sign language songs through volunteer sign language classes for people of all ages from elementary school students to adults, Tenohira is contributing to SDGs through Goal 4, quality education, and Goal 8, decent work and economic growth.
By increasing means of communication and expanding understanding of the hearing impaired, Tenohira is also contributing to Goal 3, good health and well-being; Goal 10, reduced inequality; and Goal 11, sustainable cities and communities.
