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.

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
