    Hello, my daughter in law also knows how to do sign language. She was teaching the deaf before.

    I found your site interesting and be telling her about your college.

    I borrowed your picture so when the professors are going to Korea. I also posted a back link to your site to increase your web traffic. This will increase page views.
    I am helping out in promoting tourism in our country to create jobs.

    I think the deaf tourists will be happy to know about your institution.
