How long did it take Hurt to learn sign language?


I was reading online that, in order to be really fluent in sign language, it takes anywhere form 3-7 years depending on the time you take each day to practice. I also read somewhere that William Hurt learned sign language specifically for this movie. He seemed incredibly fluent in it and he probably became better and better at it after being his relationship with Matlin.

Anyways, anyone know how long it took him to learn the language?
