Mackenzie, Julian and I are about half way through our inquiry and things are going very well. I have mastered finger-spelling and about 150 words in ASL such as: red, dog, please, store etc. I understand how sentence structure works, only the basic words are put in as the language is very blunt and simplified. For example instead of saying ‘how are you’ I would sign, ‘how you’ with a questioning facial expression to replace tone. I am on pace with the goals set and am positive that we will finish this inquiry on time.
