Hallo Kim, 
ja - das ist eine gute Idee. 

Mit den Graphiken kannst du die kurzen deutschen Texte sicher problemlos

Die langen Kommentare- das Vorwort,  zu den Mundbildern und der Schluss
kannst du dann später in englischer Fassung nachlesen - ;-)) 

Die viele Graphiken helfen aber sicher beim Verstehen der Symbole und beim
Lesen von MovementWriting. 

Stefan ;-)
