  4. Newbie here

    Hi Sharna, I have just joined so am also new at this - I have been trying to learn sign language and i am currently doing my level 1 so just at the beginning as well. I have been going to a class but it would be good to be able to practice during the week.
  5. Newbie here

    Hi. I’m sharna. I wear hearing aids as I am hard of hearing and because of that I’ve always wanted to learn bsl but the courses are very expensive and I tried with just an online course but then I couldn’t practice with people which is what I want (otherwise it’ll be like in one ear and out the other but about eyes instead of ears. Also - I made an ear joke haha - not wanting to offend anyone by that though If you can’t laugh...) I really want it as a second language to the point of I can do it without much thought like I do with English. And hopefully I’ll make friends. Nice to meet you all

  9. New to sign language

    Hello everyone i'm pretty new to bsl but would love to learn it. It would help in my job in case i get any deaf customers , it would also be good if i made any deaf friends. If anybody is up for helping me , i'm not straight forward with video call but i'd like to talk about stuff more before i do as i have anxiety and it's a little difficult to video call with a stranger haha. Thanks for taking your time to read this!
  10. Hello everyone, new to BSL

    Hi Trespasser, I work on Wensleydale Railway in North Yorkshire.
  11. Hello everyone, new to BSL

    Hi Ken, what heritage railway would that be then? .. Also glad to see your looking to expand your driving tuition to cater for the deaf community, I guess that will bring in a bit more custom for you and also make a few new friends along the way ..
  12. Well a few years ago I worked for myself as a computer technician / engineer and had a crazy thought of providing support for deaf people as I found it was (or appeared to be) an empty niche in an already crowded market, wherever I looked I saw every man and his dog was setting up shop repairing computers and selling stuff. Yet despite the cheaper prices, snazzy signs, and advice they were prepared to sell you no one actually had any comprehension of providing a service for the deaf.... Fortune seemed to smile on me at this time as we had a good friend and neighbour who was very fluent in sign language (which I found out later) and he agreed to teach me, about 10 weeks later we had christmas arrive and stopped the lessons for a short while but in the new year everything changed and the lessons never resumed ... shortly after both he and his family moved house virtually overnight.. Meanwhile lifes dynamics have changed and I had to close the business due to my customers dropping off and a recurring back problem from an industrial injury many moons ago which sort of restricts me from crawling under desks and in roof spaces running cables, so i'm now unemployed and looking once again to learn sign language mainly for my own gratification but if the situation arises I could actually bring some computer knowledge to deaf people .... once I grasp an understanding of sign language

    Hi I passed my Level 1 when I was 16/17 (now 36) I can only remember bits but I really would like to continue with higher Levels. Is there a refresher course I could do then carry on to Level 2 or would I need to retake Level 1 again? Thank you for any advice.

  26. Hello all

    Thank you Jacob.
  27. Hello, my name is Ken. I am a driving Instructor who is hard of hearing. I have started to learn sign language so that I can offer lessons to the deaf community as well as hearing. I also work as a volunteer on a heritage railway and we do get deaf people ride the trains, so it would be good to be able to tell them about the history and sights they can see from the train. So I have a long way to go to achieve that, but I have made a start.
  28. Hello all

    Ted, welcome to Sign Language Forum! Hopefully, we'll be able to help you. If you need anything, just PM me and I'll try my best to help!
