Dear Sirs!
It is with great pleasure that I write to thank you personally for accepting the use of SignWriting in your school for deaf children. SignWriting is a new idea. There are, presently, 27 countries trying it for the first time. And I feel very honored indeed, that Saudi Arabia and the Arabic Nations are among them.

I am particularly impressed with teacher Mohamed Ismail Mahmod Abushaira, for his patience and untiring devotion to translating the SignWriting instruction manuals into Arabic and Arabic Sign Language. This is a major task and I am quite delighted that he was able to give me such excellent files!  I will now post them on our SignWriting Web Site. I hope you will visit:

As you know, several years ago, Saudi Arabian Abdul Aziz Al-Obaid was interviewed about SignWriting. There is a web article that includes Abdul Aziz's interview, along with a photograph of H.R.H. Prince Bandar Bin Sultan Bin Abdulaziz, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States:

If there is anything that you need to further help your Deaf students learn SignWriting, please tell me.

Many blessings,
Assalamu alaikum!
