Yes, Val, keep it up! Everybody has to learn the symbols and parts of symbols, so as to know what gestures are being written. This ought to work for everybody; it is a little like
learning a very large alphabet, or like learning the various parts of Chinese characters. Now maybe I can learn ASL through learning the significance of many symbols; I will
learn the word-order of ASL sentences by observing the order of the symbols. Great!

This lesson below is a Fantastic idea. I have been approaching my students that way too. We had a mixture of accents, what ever we signed we wrote down and made guessing games out of it. Real fun !!!! Gramar?????????? hmmmmm It did not matter as long as they could write and read.

This is wonderful Tini!
