When I did the sign language class, i had the teacher describe the sign, and 
my mom and I also took the class together so we worked over the signs 

Was actually a lot of fun.

Am not good at "reading" with touch signs unless the person goes, extremely

I guess, you are going to communicate by having someone do the signs in your 
hands. Is this correct?

subject such as this.  So thank you for the book!

  I have taken sign language classes and also found it frustrating because 
of my vision problem. I had difficulty reading the sign language quickly and 
producing the signs since I had difficulty seeing the exact nature of the 
signs to copy. Like you I am interested in Deaf Culture and wish that I had 
a more effective way to sign. I am glad to know that someone else had the 
same experience as I had. At one time I wanted to teach kids with hearing 
impairments but gave up because signing was difficult for me.

  Hi CIndy
Thanks again for takig the book on. The book will answer that questions and 
many others. I too have been interested n deaf culture but have never 
learned an effective way to learn to sign. I tried a class but it was full 
imersion and very frustating. Anyways, thanks again for the help. If you 
have any questions, I wstil have the file.
Take care
