So, this week hadn’t gone exactly as I had hoped…
For those of you who may not know, I have decided to learn American Sign Language. Unfortunately, I didn’t get as far in my progress for last week’s learning project plan as I had hoped. In my original plan for last week, I decided that I would watch videos on counting, colours, and fingerspelling. Because this past week was a busy one for me preparing for a couple different presentations, I did not have as much time to watch all three videos. I did watch them each once, but I did not get a chance to go back and re-watch and study them enough to feel confident enough to move on to the next steps. I believe that if I were to just move on to the part, I would be missing a chunk of the foundation needed to be successful.
This week I have decided that I will continue with these three topics and hope to get a better grasp on them.
Although I am disappointed that I am not moving forward this week, I have been reminding myself that good things take time, and that learning a new language is going to take longer than a couple weeks.
I’m looking forward to continuing my progress with ASL.
