    Hello! 👋🏽My name is Khouri, I’m hearing, currently in an intermediate ASL class at Uni, and live in Southern California. I’m looking for someone who can be patient with me and wants to review basic signing, sentence structure, vocab, and just chit chat. Even though I’m currently in intermediate classes my signing skills themselves are a couple years behind because I haven’t been able to use them as much as I hoped I would over the years. But, this time I want it to stick! Find me on facebook (khouribee) or instagram (khouriouri) if you’d like to get started! I’m willing to work with whatever schedule we can come up with for skyping/facetime.

    Howdy! I’m interested in practicing a little bit here and there with people who don’t mind a relative beginner. I’ve been using the LifePrint website – just finished lesson 13, so nearly done with “level 1”! I’m enjoying it greatly and hoping to practice trying to have actual conversations. I’m 38, currently in Chicago. My Skype is megseliz0 – say hello!
