Hello Katrin!
What a wonderful day...Two messages from Germany. It is wonderful to  
meet you, Katrin, and of course, also Janna!

And yes, I cannot imagine a better teacher than Stefan. We enjoy  
Stefan's positive artistic and creative teaching of SignWriting.  
Stefan's textbook is really impressive....I hope you learn to write  
German Sign Language in SignWriting and will maybe someday write real  
literature, like children's stories, or perhaps even school textbooks  
in SignWriting. Recently there have been statistical research studies  
that show that Deaf student's test scores improve with SignWriting in  
the classroom...

Here in the US we have started the "SignWriting Literature Project".  
Our goal is to write and publish much new literature written in  
American Sign Language. You can read many new documents in our ASL  
Literature Puddle:

ASL Literature Puddle

If you go there, and click on "Search by Words" icon, and then place  
an asterisk * (a star) in the Search Field, and then press the Search  
Button, it lists the names of all the documents there...

I did that for the German Literature Puddle:

and I am really impressed to see all the literature there!

Have you or Janna written any of the documents yourselves?

Nice to meet you, Katrin!

Val ;-)

I like this one....;-)
