One time at George Washington University in an engineering class of about perhaps 15 students we had another deaf student who brought his interpreter with him. I always sit in the front. The professor spoke well and so I listened without any problems but from time to time I looked at the interpreter...and found myself distracted...realized this I had to totally ignore the interpreter so I can re-focus on the professor. I was much better off with the professor speaking. The interpreter wasn't mine and I had no need for one but the other deaf student did.
