Spoken language - the catalyst for the deaf to return to the main stream
Language is the most convenient and efficient tool for people to communicate with each other. The sign language has a different grammatical flow from the general Chinese language. It is difficult for the deaf and the healthy-hearing to communicate even if both of them use Chinese. Spoken language is the foundation of writting. What the school for the deaf should do is to train the deaf students to get used to expressing themselves with spoken language, as well as modify their flow according to the pattern of spoken language. Only in this way can the gap between the deaf and the society be narrowed, and hopefully be eliminated at last.
