Very true, I can speak but not prefect voice like hearing.
At first I was nervous to think how to communicate with ADers when I planned to go USA to meet them last July 2007 because my friends teased me and wish me good luck to communicate with Americans. We know they use signing without speaking.. I met DreamDeaf & Mizzou at Airport... I was total speechless that they SPEAK on the same time they signing... I don't care about their different language but understood their lips prefect... They laughed when I told them... They insured me to not worry and will support me when some ADers signing me without speaking. I met many ADers - they sign with speaking... wow... which not same I met Americans in Germany. It's very hard to follow their just sign language development. I told them - they laughed... They asked me to correct Europeans (I mean British and German friends) that some Americans can sign with speaking like Europeans, not all Americans. I did.
I learn ASL as the same as they learn German sign language... They watch my lip movement when I signing. They said that they have no problem to understand me.
Yes, that's right - I use voice when I call my boys from upstair or other room for dinner or something...
You are welcome. And that good that you have met your A'der friends that does support you while you was in USA last summer. Bless them.. yet know it does fun to learn each other ...
