Introduction to Cultural Notes
Throughout this course, you will see a series of notes which should help or add to your classroom work. The Cultural notes are intended to explain more about the language you are learning and will introduce you to some of the values and behaviour related to communicating in the Deaf community.
In the Cultural notes, we have used a capital 'D' in the spelling of 'Deaf’ when referring to people who are members of the Deaf community (see Cultural note No 5). We have used a lower case ‘d’ when referring to the inability to hear (‘deaf’).
In some Cultural notes there will be references which you can follow up for more details.
