Cool! I've always wanted to learn how to sign ever since they taught letters in school. I think it's amazing that people can talk with their hands. I love the pictures, the layout, and the video in this hub!

The dog in the video is adorable! I know that comment is a bit off the beaten track but I had to include that. The lady in the video did a great job but her arm had to be quite tired by 100! I can perform the alphabet and an assortment of words. Two childhood friends were hearing impaired and taught me many signs early in life.

Thanks for the share.
