Hi 

I am a hearing person, but with tinnitus. I have always been interested in sign language, but recently have been challenged to learn it properly. Firstly as I have realised that not speaking BSL alienates a lot of people within my own country! I work in a  Polling station during elections and one chap who votes regularly is profoundly deaf and he needs an interpreter to vote - I'm hoping to be able to sign a bit for him in a weeks time. I'm also a Christian and love singing songs with signing - particularly in a group environment where I can learn better.. I dream of a time where every church (and every place of worship) has signers to assist people :)

Also my mum has Alzheimers and someone from the Alzheimers society said a good way to prevent/delay the disease is to learn a new language ... so why not BSL!! 

That's enough from me Have a good day. :)

Judy
