SignWriting List
November 23, 2010

Hello Andre and Stefan!

This is such great news...

Congratulations Stefan, on presenting on Skype, from Germany to Quebec, Canada!

This is so wonderful...I am sure everyone learned a great deal from you.

I wish we could see the presentation too. Did you record the presentation? smile...I hope so!

The presentation is important for SignWriting history, and for the history of Deaf Education -

Thank you for inviting Stefan to speak, Andre, and for informing us too -

Isn't Skype just a miracle? To think that we can present to each other on Skype from around the world, is just such a blessing -

Thanks once again for telling us -

Val ;-)

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.
