Hi Valerie, Erika and friends,


Today we played around with three language documents: DGS – spoken German – spoken English – and compared this with ASL – spoken German – spoken English  - wow this is so much fun to see the smiles in the faces –


It has become so easy to create wonderful worksheets and teaching material. And the deaf kids take so much advantage from this idea of bilingual ( ha: trilingual)  documents. ;-)


I made a screenshot to illustrate what I am talking about.


You may imagine the smiles on the faces...


But of course you know – it is the same all over the world once you offer signwriting to deaf children  ;-))
