Hi Lucy, 
first of all - welcome back to the list - 

What an interesting thing - you know what ?? - February or March next year
my deaf students will probably go for a visit to a school in Poland 

Lublińcu, Lubliniec Polen (Hörgeschädigtenschule)
This is connected to a Comenius project. 

So before we get in contact with fotos, letters and hopefully some kind of
video-chat - we will see. 

You can bet that we introduced ourselves with presenting a document written
in GebaerdenSchrift - Perhaps the teacher and students will show interest in
this "weird collection of circles, arrows and strokes" ... smile 

So we will be interested to study some Polish  SL-vocabularies ...Good to
know that you take care of the Polish SignPuddle Dictionary. So if there are
spelling questions I will ask you ...  

We will keep in touch

Attached is my suggestion for the sign for Wikipedia. I am not sure if I 
have written it correctly :-)

SignWriting is not and will not be a part of the Polish Deaf school 
curricula in the nearest future. It is being currently introduced to 
students of junior and senior high schools for the deaf (aged 13-20, and to 
their teachers) in the Malopolska [Little Poland] voivodeship, that is in 
the cities of Krakow and Tarnow. The final goal of this project is to work 
out and publish a syllabus/a programme for teaching SW. I will write a small

report for you after completing the first part of the project, that is the 
introduction. After that we will choose schools or groups of students and 
teachers, for whom I will conduct an in-depth SW course. The project is 
funded by the EU and implemented by a company based in Nowy Sacz, in 
cooperation with the Polish Association of the Deaf. The company (named 
CZAS) specializes in implementing similar EU-funded projects and has hired 
me to carry out the SW presentations and workshops.

Lucy :-)
