Hello

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Loreta, I’m 28 and live in Norfolk. I’m in self isolation due to Covid-19, and the fantastic opportunity came along for me to learn BSL (which I have always wanted to learn), so I jumped at it. I used to work in retail and one particular stuck me whenever they came in, they were deaf and I found myself so unable to cater to their needs and offer them the customer service they deserve. I wanted to help this customer as much as I could but the language barrier prevented this. I have since left this job due to starting a family but my desire to learn BSL hasn’t diminished. When I eventually go back to work after my degree, I plan on helping as many deaf people I can in my new job role so they feel just as important and valued as everybody else.

    • Hey Everyone, I'm excited to be writing my wee story for you all! I have started learning BSL after being introduced to the deaf community through my new job. I work for a company who provides VRS and VRI services.

I hope that after I complete the BSL c
    • Hi Everyone, Hope you are all well! I have two reasons for learning sign language, the first being it will be a great addition alongside my current degree and after taking an intro course at the university I knew it would be great to continue the journey. Secondly, I work in a supermarket where a few people are part of the deaf community and I would really like to have a proper conversation. I am really enjoying learning BSL , although I am progressing slowly due to other commitments.
