How wonderful, Stefan!

It is great that the students from the University of Hamburg could
stay a whole week ...that means they got a chance to watch
SignWriting in action in your classroom on a day to day basis....

Can you tell us a little more about the students from Hamburg? Were
they associated with the HamNoSys system at all?

How did they find out about your work, and what was the purpose of their visit?
