Here I am struggling and tearing my hair out by the root to learn this (awesome) language and then there's...HIM.
He fools deaf people all the time. They always seem suprised when he reveals he's a hearie.
There is no need to be jealous of a CODA. Im deaf/hoh as well but I grew up in an all oral environment and Im in the learning process of ASL. It doesnt come over night, but don't give up. Just spend more time practicing with your friends and you'll come along.
