Hello Antonio Carlos!
Thanks for your messages - great to have a conversation again ;-)

Actually, the two you mention below are only two of around 5  
differences, and that is why I need to start teaching Receptive, if  
we are going to really use Receptive at times...

Adam did an excellent "first try" and I was really impressed with it,  
but I am now preparing a lesson to show why the writing was not  
really full Receptive....Adam's writing was a mixture of Receptive  
and Expressive...but there was no way for him to that  
lesson is coming next, along with a lesson on Surface Symbols for  
Anny and Jonathan -

So stay tuned!

Val ;-)
