This is a must for the Deaf community! I've faced countless language barriers. Yes, I always managed to overcome these barriers.
But it wasn't easy when they failed to understand my gesture or writing in english. I beieve this T-shirt is one of new alternatives for communicating with locals. Hmm, I'd say this is a new form of breaking our language barriers!
“Many times we were confronted with a language barrier that was only to be overcome by drawing signs, symbols or icons on a piece of paper, map, or into the dirt,” explain George, Steven, and Florian.
“We thought it would be great to have an essential set of icons with you, permanently, so that you could just point on whatever you need – and people would understand. Soon the notepad was pulled out again and we started listing more or less essential icons that would have been of great help during not just ours, but basically anyone’s trip.”
