Subject:  Re: SW courses on the internet

Private tutoring would likely be prohibitively expensive, but I for one
would be willing to pay for much less than that. I'd love to be given
some example sentences illustrating important points, translate them
myself into SW, and than be given a correct transcription to compare mine
against. No more than that. It could be done over e-mail, with the SW
portion in .sgn files; pretty easy to do if people want it.
