    Good to hear from you. Unfortunately I am down in Stroud - I go to a class in Gloucester.

    Hard of hearing new to BSL

    Hello, my name is Helen and I have become progressively more hard of hearing since I was 42 (I'm now 61). I wear aids in both ears and am aware that I may become profoundly deaf, so I have begun to learn BSL. I am an instrumental tutor so this raises some challenges but I teach one-to-one so can manage quite well at present. I am just completing a five week introduction to BSL with my daughter - which is great because we can practice together! Mainly I become frustrated with my inability to absorb new signs as fast as I would like...but I expect that applies to most people. By co-incidence I have a deaf from birth dog who I have taught various signs and he responds very well! Just wanted to ask whether anyone here who is doing BSL has found a club locally where they have gone to make friends and practise signing - it seems to be a recommendation for doing Level 1.
