I am sooo glad that you are visiting Stefan Woehrmann's classroom in
Germany in February! That is wonderful...

And thank you for the sign for Germany in Brussels...that is a good one
to analyze...

With these lessons I plan to move you from intermediate to advanced
SignWriting spellers!

Imagine you visit me in California. I do not know what your signs mean,
nor does that matter...in fact it is better that I do NOT know what
they mean, so I can truly analyze the spelling...If you were sitting
here in my living room, I would not want you to show me the
sign...instead I would try to reproduce it myself, solely by reading
your SignWriting, and if I do the sign properly so you can understand
it...then we know that the SignSpelling is correct!

So please look at the next message...Val ;-)
