Hello, hello! Seems I took something of a summer vacation! I’ve had that happen from time to time on my blogs. I think I sort of step back and recharge my batteries. I’ve been busy of course, what with work and extracurricular activities. Interestingly, while I have not been specifically practicing my signing, I have been going to local deaf meets at least once or twice a month and someone always comments that I’m improving rapidly. I think I do the same thing with language: I go through this explicit learning stage and then sit back and let it all bubble and froth. The best part is that I do have a friend who knows sign language whom I see fairly regularly and while we just chitchat, I know from learning other languages that it’s this type of practice that establishes concrete building blocks.
Now I’m off to read the ECA articles 🙂
