Subject: Re: Writing ASL Grammar
This note is to Judy or any other teachers of the deaf: My ASL teacher wants
to improve his English--both written and reading. Suggestions...(by the way,
I've printed this up). He is a wonderful fellow and is a gifted teacher in his
own language and would like to teach ASL at the collegiate level. I can show
him SW, but I'm so new to it and learning myself, so I'm afraid I'll muddy the
waters. Hellllppppp!!! Cheryl
