He became fluent in English in three months. He's learning braille and 70 different "cane skills," or positions for walking with a cane. "Seventy," he says. "That's a lot." How'd you become fluent in English in three months? "Just listen, listen, listen, listen." Do you have a favorite book? "That I read? It's The Little School Bus.
