I have a fascination with learning a new language all my life. I guess I just love the idea of being able to communicate with people from different cultures and backgrounds. I've learnt 'little bits' from a few languages; mainly around saying "hello, how are you?", that sort of thing, and having lived in both Germany and Cyprus, I have tried to learn German and Greek, being able to speak and read a good amount of each language. However I struggled to hold a conversation as I couldn't translate fast enough.

Having tried, and mainly failed, with spoken languages, I though I may have more success with a visual language, so am trying to learn BSL.

I don't have any deaf  friends or family, however 2 of my sisters sign in their local churches, and it fascinates me to see them.

    • I am a hearing student, who aspires to become a doctor, I have been thinking how poor it is that Medics are not expected to be able to speak at least a basic level of sign. I am learning it because it will make me a more empathetic and caring doctor, more able to effectivley communicate with  those around me in sign if they so choose. Hospitals are scary places and if someone can communicate with you even a bit to help you feel comfortable I think that is really important. I think it is a s
