You will do this by...
• Building a solid knowledge of the alphabet & numbers, so you can "finger spell" any word in the English language
• Learning vocabulary to talk about a range of common topics (days of the week, verbs, family, etc.), so you can learn the words that are important to you in your unique situation
• Learning common phrases for everyday interactions and greetings, so you can communicate with deaf people in a meaningful way
• Practising all the above with regular revision, comprehension tests, and PDF notes to take away and study anywhere
