Reading with Blissymbolics is AWESOME - updates from South Africa

Louisa Alberts reports:

Hi Everybody

We had great success with Nandile at our school, to such an extent that our Principal gave us a Blissymbol classroom.

I now have 20 learners reading with Blissymbolics, from which 5 learners are already bridging from Blissymbolics to Traditional Orthography. Three learners read with Boardmaker™, Mayer-Johnson. One of them is busy bridging from Boardmaker PCS™ symbols to Blissymbolics.
