This paper shows a method of teaching written language to deaf
people using sign language as the language of instruction.
Written texts in the target language are combined with sign
language videos which provide the users with various modes of
translation (words/phrases/sentences). As examples, two EU
projects for English for the Deaf are presented which feature
English texts and translations into the national sign languages of
all the partner countries plus signed grammar explanations and
interactive exercises. Both courses are web-based; the programs
may be accessed free of charge via the respective homepages
(without any download or log-in).
