[Greetings from Principals ]
Ms.Oshio Principal of Hiratsuka Deaf School
Hello! I am Ms. Oshio, the school principal.
We are very happy to have this opportunity today.
It is amazing to meet and talk with you in Oahu Island Hawaii
which is very far away from Japan.
Thank you for your participation.
Let's enjoy this video conference!
Ms. Nancy Bridenbaugh
Director of Gallaudet Regional Center
Aloha, from the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii.
I would like to welcome you on behalf of Gallaudet University Regional Center at Kapiolani Community College and the Hawaii Center for the Deaf and the Blind.
We are all excited to share this special exchange of cultures with you.
Thank you for inviting us to participate.
[Comment From TIJ]
I think this conference was successful.
It was very interactive one.
We didn't have the time of free talk on our schedule, so I didn't ask both students if they had questions or not. But they asked some questions actively and taught their own sign language each other.
I hope both schools continue this kind of exchange.
I'll write comments again with the results of both schools' questionnairs and comments , after I got them .
