September is International Month of Deaf People, a month dedicated to increasing awareness about deaf culture, social norms and issues. And what better way to get involved than to learn the basics of sign language yourself?
That’s exactly where Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands has stepped in, the first hotel in the world to have a team made up of 30% deaf and hard-of-hearing staff members. Every day this month, Park Inn will feature in a new gif with us, teaching you a useful word in sign language. Take a look at the first one below, and check back each morning for another!
