    Hi Everyone!

    Hi there. I'm a hearing twenty eight year old that is finally getting into formal ASL classes. I would love to meet someone willing to sign over skype. (I need someone with patience because I tend to ask a lot of questions so that I fully understand.) Thank you so much in advance!
