Hi! 👋 I'm Darryl.. Nice too meet you all..
Why am I learning BSL? Well, I'm 50% deaf in my right ear, and have been since the age of 3. I also have constant tinnitus and have had for as long as I can remember. But that's not my motivation for learning.
When I was a kid, my Mam's best friend was an interpreter, and her partner was profoundly deaf. I remember him coming round (or my going round to their home) and seeing how frustrated he seemed to get sometimes not being able to communic
I definitely think that schools should teach non-verbal communication to all students to some extent, for inclusivity of people like your son avsamp and because any level of any language is a great skill! I've been teaching lots of my friends the BSL finger alphabet
I am doing my Duke of Edinburgh certification at the moment and need to learn a new skill for it. I chose to learn sign language because it's something I've never learnt before and I love languages, I think any language is an amazing skill to have.
