  1. I've tried learning BSL several times in the past 30 years. Evening classes as a teenager, informal classes at church to encourage more potential interpreters, and more recently several opportunities through work. I work as an accessibility specialist, and it would nice to be able to communicate with others in a way suited for them. It will always be easier for me to learn sign than for a deaf person to hear. And if I could get good enough, it would be nice to be able to interpret for others, even if only in an informal capacity.
  2. Hello, my name is Emma. I'm working through the british-sign.co.uk course "Intro to BSL", and supporting colleagues at work to do the same. I've done something similar several times before, so I'm hoping this time my brain catches on this is something I'd like it to remember. I first met BSL as a child, through friends who are deaf, and completed Level 1 and 2 courses as a teenager in Northern Ireland. However, I'm not a natural at learning languages and years of not using it enough make it hard to recall. But practice makes good, right?!
