Hello SW List Members,
Yes...you are right....no pushing anyone - that would be a bad idea I
agree....It appears that the Pen Pal idea is a long way off in the
We had a Pen Pal Club back in the mid 1980's once, and I received some
wonderful pen pal letters from New York City and Denmark, but then it
stopped and we never took up the idea again....
The idea of a Pen Pal Club in SignWriting between classrooms of Deaf
students is just that...an idea ;-)
If there is ever anyone on the SW List who would like a pen pal in
SignWriting, write to me and maybe we can find a writing partner for
you...who knows? ;-)
Keep up the great work, Stefan....and please say hello to you students for us!
