Post to list:

To the question of flashcard for a script system, I would suggest you start with downloading the basic handshapes and their symbols, and paste them (in appropriate size) onto your flashcards. Then some basic movement symbols, and on to HELLO or similar signs. That way you get a systematic introduction, which people will be able to follow.

Good luck : )
