Chapter 17 Summary

For the next two years, Helen studied at the Wright-Humason School for the Deaf in New York. Ms. Sullivan attended as her interpreter. They chose that school because it was the best for continuing the development of Helen's speech and lip-reading skills. She also studied math, geography, French and German.

Helen was disappointed – and she says her teachers were, too – that she did not learn to speak more like other people, although she worked hard at it. She did not learn to like or excel at math. Despite these setbacks, her love for languages and geography gave her fond memories of her time in New York. As for the city itself, the only thing she liked was Central Park. Helen loved being immersed in nature, and her daily walks in Central Park were the closest she could get to her former life in the country.
