Goal of the event:
All the sections of Madrid have organized the activity in one of the restaurants that we usually carry out activities for all Erasmus Students. By joining all sections of Madrid it has been better for more Erasmus students to participate.
Short description of the event:
During the snack meal the Erasmus was given a material from the Federacion De Sordos de Madrid (provided in the course that I am currently doing with LSE) with information about the deaf community, the alphabet and various dynamics that we made during the Dinner. The ERASMUS have learned to finger their names and some of the signs most used in everyday life. We made a mimic game in which the Erasmus made gestures a few drawings for their partner to reproduce them in a notebook. At the end of the activity each participant has been baptized with a gesture as all deaf people do to recognize them by their gesture as if it were their name.
How did your event go?:
The ERASMUS have been delighted with the activity and want to do a second meeting to learn more about the LSE, some have asked us for information about associations of deaf people in Madrid or if we knew where they could take an LSE course.
