Let's get the Arabic part of my posts out of the way shall we? My Arabic teacher found out that she will be the American teacher taking the four students to Israel this summer. How cool is that? And I have a really good chance of being one of those students! It's so awesome! I really hope I can go. Also me and 6 other students from my class (7/11 ha ha) got to go to the state capitol to watch the Governor sign a bill giving more money to the more exotic languages such as Chinese, Arabic and Russian. Here is a picture of us that is on my teacher's blog. Since I doubt anyone checks those out because she's about as good as updating as I am, I'm putting them here.
Just so you know why some of us look unhappy/ uncomfortable is because we were getting pictures taken left and right. Not to mention the Gold room was extremely hot. Also some of us ie me was not expecting it.
The ride up and back was pretty fun too. I like hanging out with boys I've decided. Though only a certain kind.
So now that's done let us go on to American Sign Language. So apparently every year there is this HUGE deaf conference at UVU. Tons of deaf people come from all over the country. Who knew? Anyway I went this year and had a blast. We watched some movies that were about deaf, or were made by, deaf people. One was really cool because It was a deaf woman talking about her experience in Austria in WW2. It was sad but interesting.
I got to go to a lecture from a famous deaf woman. Don't ask me her name I can't remember. Though it was really thought provoking.
In class we did a test, well I did it last year level 3 is doing it right now, on this movie called "Eyeth." It's all signed by this one guy and I got to meet him. It was so cool.
Anyway here's a picture of us on the bus that is on my teacher's blog. Since I doubt anyone checks those out because she's about as good as updating as I am, I'm putting them here.
