Monday closes out a five week mentorship I was enrolled in. It was hard for me to admit that I was not proficient. I have to say that interpreting has been a constant struggle. I’m not complaining because this struggle/challenge has been enlightening. I cab see that the mentorship has been well worth my time. In just five weeks I can see changes in my ASL/PSL product that were lacking.
Armed with the tools to continue, I will practice somethings that have been pointed out to me. For example, I sign a lot of signs. Too many for a consumer to get a clear understand of what’s going on. Why work so hard when you can sign fewer signs and be amazingly clear?
Also, placing people, object, countries, continents in space makes for a clear “picture” in my product. Armed with sticky notes, I can practice that too.
I am a little sad that the mentorship is over so quickly. Five weeks flew by.
