    • I have always had a fascination with sign language since I was a child but never really got a chance to learn more than the alphabet in primary school. I want to further my learning of this language as it will also help me to become more a part of the d/Deaf community. I have severe hearing loss in one ear so I likely won't ever need BSL as my primary mode of communication but it would definitely be helpful, especially around others who speak it. Since getting my first hearing aid (finally, that's too long of a journey to explain here) I have felt more like this is a community I belong in and so want to learn more about it and be able to communicate with people who speak BSL.  I signed up to a course in September but university work piled up so it took a back seat but now that it's summer, I can't wait to get on with learning the language. As someone who loves language in general, it seemed like a natural progression as a good language to learn as it has it's basis in English so it's not completely different and will be nice to learn along side French as it is significantly easier in my opinion. 
    • Hello.   Alot of deaf people like dance, what type of dance you do ? 
    • Hi,  My name is Siana and I am 19 (almost 20, gosh, goodbye teenage years finally 😆). I decided to start a BSL course in order to learn more about the language as it has always interested me. It helps that I also have severe hearing loss in my left ear so am becoming, more so, a part of the d/Deaf community which gives me all the more reason to learn. I signed up at the beginning of September but as university work piled up, my learning got put on the back burner, but now that it's summer, I really want to give it a good shot. I can't wait to learn more
    • Hi Vee,  My name is Jemimah and I am also studying my BSL 102. If you would like to practice via video conference, please let me know. (Though looking at the date that you posted you must have already passed by now)
    • Hello my name is Niamh and I wanted to introduce myself 
    • Hi Kieran, Try typing into google local deaf club/cafe in your local area and see if any come up. I have tried local to me. Many places are still closed due to lock down. Best of luck
    • Do you know how I would find a local BSL group?
    • Hello everyone! I am an artist, social entrepreneur, and coach based in London, born in the Philippines. I've always been interested in inclusion and accessibility. A few months ago came across some very inspiring videos about ASL. These got me interested in learning more about sign language and opened up a whole new world to me. I've been doing some research on sign language these past few months and have finally started to learn BSL since I live in the UK. I am multilingual (been learning my fourth language this past year), and my background in dance gets me really excited to be able to communicate with others through signing and movement.    Looking forward to learning and practicing together!
