Thank you for this message, George - I am glad the SignWriting Basics book has worked for you. It is the very basics of SignWriting...enough to start reading and writing...

It can be downloaded:

SignWriting Basics

And I think meeting on Skype by appointment is a wonderful idea, because communication face to face is oftentimes much better than through email - I enjoy meeting people and enjoy sharing .... sometimes email can be too stressful for me ...but when meeting one on one, on Skype or iChat, we can learn from each other in a more relaxed way -

So I want you to know that if you would like to meet on Skype, I would be happy to do so. Write to me privately if you would like that -

I am now going to write to Maureen Doyle on Facebook - thank you Maureen for your many messages - I miss our communication too - and then I am working behind the scenes and helping my family -

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Val ;-)

I am amazed that you can take the time to meet someone on Skype to help the person with a crash course.  But I would like to add my two cents and say that ANYONE can learn signwriting from Sign Writing Basics without external help. It really is crystal clear.

Hello Kimberly!
Thank you for this message. The quickest "crash course" we can provide is for you to read the book I mailed you in the postal mail, called "SignWriting Basics"... the one with the signer with the red shirt on... 

...and then let's make a Skype appointment and meet on Skype - we can meet face to face that way and we can discuss each page in the book together... it is write again and we can make a skype appointment -

Also, if you go on SignPuddle and go to the ASL Dictionary and ASL Literature puddles and search for signs and something to read, that can also help get you started -

Look forward to hearing from you -

Hello List!

Does anyone know of any online interactive workshops ('crash course') in SW for those interested in learning the system?  A physical workshop in the US would work, too!
