"Give-it-a-go" Bridge is fun to play and the better you play the more fun it is. Despite popular opinion to the contrary, bridge is not a difficult game to learn. Whether you've played cards before or not, you really ought to 'give-it-a-go' - you won't regret it.

Standard English ACOL
Responding to an Opening Bid.
You are East & West opens 1D how would you respond with this hand?
Although you have support for partner's 'minor' you must show your 4-card 'major' first, so, bid 1S. 
Our first priority is always to find a 'major' fit. 
Partner can now bid 3S, inviting you to bid game.
