  1. I have just restarted trying to learn a bit of BSL - it is almost 2 years since I started and then gave up!  I am planning on completing the BSL online course this time and hope to find someone to practise signing with.  I attend weekly lip reading classes

  2. I am new to BSL and currently working my way through the basic online course.
    I wonder if someone could satisfy my curiosity as to how much a person could understand from the daily government briefings if they had no hearing and relied solely on the person signing. I have been very impressed with the expressive signing that happens during the briefings.

  3. I’m Ken – a retired teacher, living in Hampshire.  I play tennis and golf regularly – or at least I used to until CV19!
    I have quite severe hearing loss in both ears, helped by hearing aids, though I can only really follow much of what is being said if I am standing in front of the speaker.
    I am new to BSL and have just completed module 3 of the basic course.  I have also started attending lip-reading classes - but they have stopped for now with the lockdown!
    It would be great to be able to learn to chat via BSL with someone – though, with my current skills,  it would be at a very simple level!  This is a step into the unknown for me!
