i recently decided to do BSL as I have always been amazed by the fact that there is a non vocal language, plus my friend at work is deaf, and Although, we communicate well I would love to be able to communicate better with her and translate what is being briefed in the work place. An ex- partner taught me to sign the alphabet years ago and I have never forgot it. I am looking forward to the rest of the course, I have just reached the introduction section. It's great to know there is a bunch of like minded people a few clicks away.
good luck to you all
