The Office of Sign Language Supporter Development Project offers classes on Japanese Sign Language among the mock classes provided for high school students by the Gunma University Cooperative Faculty of Education.

While various schools offer hands-on encounters with sign language in classes such as the Period for Integrated Studies (elementary and junior high) or Period for Integrated Inquiry (high school), the classes offered by this project enable students to experience the study of sign language as a second language in a university format.
