Hello, My name is Jane Davidson. I started this course in August this year. I'm 64 year on Tuesday and I decided to do this course because when I was 8 years old a family friend taught me the deaf alphabet that he learnt as a child because his best friend went deaf. I have never forgotten it and decided that now was the time to do something with it. I also work at a hospital in education, 30 years this year, so I think it may come in handy. I do find it hard to remember all the signs and although I have managed to get to module 8 now, I'm still a bit slow on the uptake if I watch anything on TV with an interpreter signing. But the say practice makes perfect, I can only hope.
