** What is it **

People with hearing disabilities are in fact deprived of the opportunity to study. Lectures, seminars, communication with teachers … All this presupposes a healthy hearing. Therefore, at Czech universities, there are branches that specialize in teaching the use of sign language. This type of teaching is not only intended for deaf students.
