Hello Everyone, and Louis-Félix!
Thank you for your introduction and welcome to the SignWriting List! I
am so happy to hear from you. I remember that in October, 2003, your
university ordered our Lessons in SignWriting CD-ROM and also the
SignWriter Computer Program, and you became a SignWriting member too.
Did you receive your materials, and are you using them? smile....
Did you know that because you are a SignWriting member, you are welcome
to schedule a lesson with me personally, over the voice telephone? It
is free to members. If you can arrange for an interpreter to be there,
we can do it over a conference call if you wish, and your Deaf friends
and co-workers can participate in the lessons too...
No matter what, you have full technical support!
