Hello! My name is Natalie and I am 26 years old from North Wales. I am a performer and a dance teacher, and decided to start learning BSL as I think it will be a great skill to have and open up new opportunities to help and meet more people. Can't wait to keep learning! Hope everyone is staying safe, and keep positive!😃
Hey, ex script consultant here,
In terms of screenplays it all should be written in English with English grammar, including all of the "Spoken" lines.
If you want the character to be authentic and genuine, give the part to a genuine deaf actor who will know the how to bring the words to life with their hands.
I wish you all the luck in the world! and if you need and ex-script consultant on your team you know where to find me
Hi Everyone, my name is Theresa and I am 33 years old and live in Birmingham. I am an undertaker and decided to learn to sign so I could offer the same support and care to any families with a member who is deaf or hard of hearing. I am finding it alright so far but really use my hands a lot when I'm talking so that has been a struggle lol! I would be really interested in talking to anyone else learning, particularly to use in a are in public service setting.
Hi I am 70 this year and partially deaf following a horse riding accident, consequently wear a hearing aid. This helps with the Tinitus which also resulted from the accident. Trying! to learn BSL basics as I am a tour guide at a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I felt so inadequate when we had 2 deaf visitors and I could not even welcome them. So, lockdown can have advantages, lol. Stay safe.
