Going on is good! I like people talking, and this isn't something I know as much as I'd like to about.

Short version - I'm 24, been HoH since 6, my mother was a headcase who kept me mostly away from doctors/help and insisted I was just being awkward, so it took me until I was 23 and well away from her to even find out the extent of the damage. So I'm now playing catch-up on all the stuff I could have learned as a child. I have enough hearing to do things like watch films and enjoy music, but a lot of my talking-to-people is suplemented with lip reading, I struggle to use a phone.

...OK, maybe that wasn't the short version!

Sign nights sound like they'd be brilliant - social and learning sounds like a good combination to me.

Signing in front of the mirror is definitely helpful - I've been doing that a little bit in the bathroom mirror, practicing signs I've just been looking at on the computer.

I don't know much about things like classifiers yet, am still on the incredibly basic basics, but I'll bookmark this to come back to later, thank you.
