Hi Val, Stefan and
Four times at the University of Ottawa
(Canada) I have taught (to my students) a course called literacy and
deafness: reading and some SW. However, last November 20, I
invited Stefan Woehrmann for a videoconference for the first time.
Stefan has been teaching SignWriting to Deaf students in Germany for
11 years now. For an hour and half, he spoke about his background, his
experience and his method of teaching a SW.
Many thanks to you, Stefan, for your
outstanding presentation and for your kindness to share your experience with our
students (at 10:00am in Canada which corresponds to 4:00pm in Germany) last
Also, I invited Deaf teacher who
sometimes teaches SW to her Deaf students in Canada. She listened with her
eyes to Stefan's speech while the interpreter translated from English to LSQ
and vice-versa. Our students enjoyed listening to
Stefan's speech and learning new things.
Stefan, many thanks
