Hello!  I'm learning sign language to help me communicate more easily at home and with other hearing impaired people, including my sister and others I hope to meet in the future.  I have always been deaf in one ear, but am slowly losing my hearing in my hearing ear as well.  It is becoming increasingly more difficult for me to hear, even though I wear hearing aides.  I have beginning level skills, having learned from Dr. Bill Vicar's ASL University course (and from his free ASL learning site, Lifeprints.com).  I would like to pracice with other beginning level signers OR very patient higher-level signers.  I'm excited that this site offers an opportunity for me and others to learn from each other!

    • I'm a beginner signer and would like to practice with people using the Beginner Chat Room.  Would anyone like to join me?
