  5. Sign for Bath (City)

    Usually you would just fingerspell. Sometimes areas (i.e. the south west, or, places clise to Bath) might have an actual sign, but this is likely to be regional and not always known by everyone in other parts of the country.
  6. Live Music for the deaf community

    Hi all, I am a university student at University of the West of Scotland studying my BA for Commercial Sound Production. One of my projects I am putting on two live music events that will be multi-sensory for deaf people and hard of hearing. In order to get the approval for my project I need to get a few interviews put into my proposal as a case study, I'm hoping that some of you will be interested in this and if you could answer a few questions for me please? Questions; Would audio visual software that reacts to the music be helpful/enjoyable? Would a sign language interpreter be useful on the stage with the musicians or subtitles? Would do you feel is missing from live music events? What genres of music do you enjoy? Thank you, any feedback would be helpful.

  13. story telling video need help

    Hello, I am new to this and I've been messing about with writing and storytelling recently for my Youtube videos and so far I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from just about everybody yet I'm missing constructive criticism and educated feedback from other writers. Searching for storytelling subs came up with inactive subs with months old posts at the front page. Is there anywhere I can go to learn a bit about storytelling?I went through many resources and also checked story telling videos for solution but did not find any. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

    I have stumbled upon this 'forum'. This short video is beautiful. It makes me realize why I want to learn to sign. Thank you, Layla, for this enchanting interpretation of a profound poem. Beautiful. Thank you.

    Hi Lizz, My family are Wirral based and my daughter and myself have just this week signed upto learn sign language as my six year old grand daughter has developed some deafness so we are preparing for the worst. That said we both are interested in learning BSL anyway. Well done to you for deciding so young in life to learn & what a wonderful gift for your present condition. I hope your total deafness is a long way off, Take care ChrisM

    Hi, I'm Catherine, not sure what to do here as each time I clicked something it froze? Anyway, I'm 61 yrs young, I'm from the Wirral, Cheshire, UK. Long story short... At 16yrs of age I decided everyone should know sign language. I knew nothing about it apart from my brother had joined the specials police and was given the alphabet to learn. Of course, he never, but I did. And that was it, the start of my journey. I've signed every since. Taught myself from books, reality hard work! And later became an Interpreter for the deaf. Absolutely loved my job but due to health problems I had to give up work. Devastated me as I loved it. But I've never stopped signing. Taught many people over the years and still do as and when I'm able. Then... I became deaf, 😮 I wear 2 hearing aids but they've told me what I have will eventually go totally deaf. It goes completely on me but comes back to the level I have, he said one day it will go and it won't come back. It was a struggle initially getting used to the deafness, but I'm not bothered, I was well prepared wasn't I! God has been very good to me. I use BSL and SSE, I'm probably way behind worth the BSL touch, but I'm never too old to listen and improve! I hope! So I have communication and since I've taught all my friends to sign...it means I've plenty of people I can chat to! 😉 Sorry, that's a long post! 😱

  23. Why I'm learning BSL

    Hi this year my daughter started to go deaf due to an auto immune condition called Cogans. In the future she may get progressively worse and lose her hearing so I want to learn BSL in case that happens.
  24. Level 2 sweats

    Hiya! Im Mae, 17. I actually just started learning BSL today after being interested for many years, and am very excited to learn more. I am currently in my last year at school, and hope to go to uni next year and study drama to look at different ways of showing communication in performance. I hope to include BSL in future performances, as well as get to know different people who also know BSL.
  25. My story for learning Bsl

    Amazing Story, I hope the leaning goes well Angel
