This week we were lucky enough to have Rachel Walker come and teach us some sign language.

She taught us how to say some phrases in Sign Language such as My name is Lydia, (your name),  and Your name what? She also taught us the colours, alphabet and numbers. I learnt that us human beings that can hear can just talk to someone across the Room but death people use Sign Language and facial expressions to show what they are talking about without talking. I also learnt that their are different types of Sign Language (because I thought NZ Sign Language was the same as any other types of Sign Language) in different types of countries. I really enjoyed having Rachel teach us about Sign Language and I learnt a lot.
