Ive been interested in learning sign for many years and just need to sort myself out.  I was born deaf but it turns out it wasn't permanent as I was just all blocked up in the ear-nose-throat department.  As such I still find myself lip-reading as I was 6 years old when my tonsils and adenoids were removed and giving my hearing back. (i'm over the hill now at 40) but still love the idea of learning.  Although I'm torn between face to face learning by night school or doing an online course.  

Thanks for letting me in :-)

    • Hi, my name is Niamh (Neve) and I'm 20 years old student. I taught myself sign language when I was 8 however, I forgot it over time and given the current situation like a lot of people I thought I would learn in again. I would love if anyone would like to practice with me and kinda cheer each other on to complete everything :) let me know!!!
