Any thoughts of providing guides to finding printable alphabets for other languages?

I didn't realize that you could get the alphabet over the Internet. Thank you for informing me, and I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who also didn't think about it. I also like your article. I enjoyed reading it.

Great article! I'm going to print one up right now so my son can learn to spell the words he is just learning to read.

Very good article. I was in Bellingham, WA a while back and they have one of the largest deaf communities in the U.S.. I was aware that you can get these online as I am partially deaf, but you did a great job on the article.

Nice article Jason. I attempted to learn sign language and had made some headway, but unfortunately didn't stick with it. I learned there are several aspects to learning it other than the alphabet to be fully fluent. I guess much like any other language. The alphabet definitely goes a long way in helping to communicate though, that's for sure.

This is so interesting and useful. I can recall learning how to sign the alphabet in Jr. High School, but it was long ago, and I would like to relearn it again. I'm going to put it on my to-do list.

I started one time to learn ASL but gave up on it because I did not put enough effort into it.
