Hello Everyone - Maria, Stefan, Shane, Charles, Suzanne -
I want to thank all of you who offered to teach SignWriting to the Deaf Center in Southport, Merceyside,
Suzanne Pach, who lives in Liverpool, which is close, and who knows Southport, has accepted to teach the workshop. Arrangements are being made now, for a workshop scheduled possibly in August, but we do not know the particulars yet.
As soon as we know the dates and times we will announce the workshop to the SignWriting List and to the SLLING List, because others who live in the UK will be welcome too...hopefully British Sign Language (BSL) will be written in the workshop, but the materials will mostly be written in ASL...that is why we need materials written in BSL if anyone has some...I know Sandy Fleming has written some BSL and we would be most happy, Sandy, if we can also use your writing as classroom materials?
Thanks to all of you, for offering to teach - your enthusiasm is wonderful!
Today I am packaging a box of SignWriting materials to send to Suzanne in advance -
Thank you, Suzanne for accepting
