Learning together with Tanzatoto

Learning together means sharing experience and material developed to help improve the education of deaf children where ever they live. Tanzatoto aims to share their knowledge to everybody working with deaf children. In doing so we take most care to only use material we have created ourselves or material for which we have the permision from the authors. If by any change we failed in doing so please let us know.
