Subject: Re: Transcribing Japanese Sign Language
do you remember that I asked for a kind of teaching group online - several
weeks ago? Big smile - we are already into it - your email lessons are so
helpful. Working as a group on a specific movie-clip is great - and I would
love very much to participate - - if - well if you don´t mind to answer
future questions of my every day business as well - I think that you will
agree - ;-)
The difference is that I´m as a teacher for deaf pupils are v e r y busy to
write day by day new signs in order to collect or save all the signs that
are needed. So there are so many oporttunities to get in touch with the need
of your support. I hope very much that I feel less pressure in a year or so
- in the meantime I´ll have no dificulties to write my spider story

I´m curious what kind of group - experience we are going to develop. It´s
great to know that I´m not the only one who is in trouble!!
Small portions - have to be difined ! But I love to participate - and I´ll
do my best to show up with my homework ;-)
All the best.
