This year’s International Day of the Deaf is marked on September 26. CGTN spoke to Chen Xin, a generation-z boy, to find out his stories with these “silent” friends.

Chen is a student in Nanjing, capital city of east China’s Jiangsu Province. He has another identity as a sign language interpreter. During the COVID-19 epidemic last year, he interpreted for a patient at the Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, central China’s Hubei Province.

As a sign language interpreter, where will Chen go with his deaf friends? Hospital, restaurant, or even studio? What’s his dream job after graduation? How does he communicate with deaf friends 30 years older than him? Let’s follow his one-day work together.
