    • Hi, I'm learning BSL through online courses & youtube (not formally). I started to lose my hearing in my mid-20s, but had a significant dip 18 months ago at 36 with severe bilateral loss. My family & friends are all hearing and I work in a hearing job, so I'm struggling to practice enough BSL to communicate effectively - right now, it's more SSE. With another dip in my hearing recently, I'm determined to crack this and would love to find some people to sign with.

    • As far as i have learned (which is very little so far) you just need the basic gestures. so work can be found here http://www.signbsl.com/sign/work  ambulance here http://www.signbsl.com/sign/ambulance and service here http://www.signbsl.com/sign/service you would have to start with "I" which is as simple as pointing to yourself. Hope this helps  pd
