I want to learn LSF, my mom was deaf and dumb and she didn’t want to teach us, she would say it was a world apart, she had been raised by her younger age until her majority in a Deaf Institute.
She had learned a job there. Today at 50, I feel the desire to learn it.

Good morning . I am misunderstanding and I learned the LSF .To revise, I went to the Voltaire site .
The idea is very interesting . The site is well done but from module 2, I have encountered error that can put beginners in difficulty .
