Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,  

I'm Ellie but my friends and family like to call me Eliza.  I have just started learning sign language as i've been wanting to do so for a while now.  I'm 16 (first year of college) and have been really interested in sign language for a few years now as my mum used to know it for a client she worked with.  I work in a supermarket and we often have deaf or signing customers come in so i'd love to one day be able to properly communicate with those in the deaf community even just to make their weekly shopping slightly easier.

Hey Ellie / Eliza, 

I hope your signing journey goes well as well as your education. I'm also in my first year of college and I would like some people to sign with as my college does not have a community for the hard of hearing unfortunately. 

I hope this does reach you and I'm sending you good wishes

Hey Cheyenne,

So glad to hear from someone my age also trying to learn BSL, I'd love to practice signing with you and go through this experience together aha.  I hope you see this and I'm also sending good wishes and good luck to you.

Hey Ellie, 

It was really nice receiving your message. I'm glad I made you feel at somewhat of ease knowing someone your age wants to learn 😊. I'd love to practice with you also but I have no clue how and where to start so you might take the lead for a bit aha. I hope this message arrives soon and we're able to talk more. 

Cheyenne x

    • I am a future English teacher and I also have a few deaf friends so it’s nice to communicate with them
    • Hello everyone, my name is Natalie and I am hoping to become a student midwife next year and have always wanted to learn BSL and thought this would be a great time to learn to help me be able to support all the women and birthing people I have the privilege of caring for.
    • Hello! My name is Shannon and I'm 22. I am starting a job as a support worker and believe that BSL would be a very useful skill. I have completed the introductory course and am looking to practice signs and become more fluent. If you have a study group/chat and wouldn't mind an extra member or would like a BSL study buddy, please let me know. Thanks
    • Hello! My name is Charlie, I live in Northern Ireland and I'm 24. I've wanted to learn sign language for a while now and finally started this course during lockdown, I'm excited to learn more!
    • Hello Everyone!  I have always wanted to learn to sign as I am hard of hearing and have spent many years missing conversations and learning to read lips.  I now work in a shop and we have several BSL users coming in and I so want to be able to sign with them!    Looking forward to learning to sign with people :-)
    • Hi. My name is Alan. I live in Northern Ireland, I am over 60 and have decided to learn sign language. I am very hard of hearing but can hear quite well with the aid of hearing devices. I'm looking forward to enjoying your conversations.   Alan.
    • Hi,  my name is Gosia. I work as a teaching assistant in a primary school. I'd like to learn BSL because we use it at school and it'd love to be able to communicate with all the children. 
    • As I work at a company that create material for children, I wish by learning more about BSL I would be able to understand better how to support children with special needs or create resources that support them, especially when I used to work at a childcare centre where most TA would struggle with children with autism; through sign language, it allows them to communicate better and I can be part of the change that make it easier for anyone that would appreciate the assistance.
