I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I am really looking forward to my ASL class, which starts again January 12th. A few of us met at the local bookstore between semesters to practice our signing skills, and I think it was relatively successful. Conversations that don't correspond with any particular area of vocabulary present a unique challenge when compared with the carefully-planned class. I think it was encouraging that we could express most of what we wanted, but also eye-opening since I know I was thoroughly stumped at times and entirely unable to convey my thoughts in ASL.
