For myself and my team we are all hearing, it is taken for granted to such an extent. When I started working in my building we had a deaf visitor come in and I was unable to converse with her which made me feel unable to do my job in helping her, I didn't know how to ask simple things and did not want to offend her, she very kindly wrote down what she needed to ask me but it shouldn't have to be that way.

Hello everyone 👋 my name is Courteney and I work in London. Me and my team on reception are doing the introductory sign language course to be more inclusive of our deaf visitors. But I've got to say Courteney is an awfully long name to fingerspell, nickname suggestions anyone?!
I'm learning BSL as i myself am deaf and i never had the opportunity growing up to learn sign language. only the past 3 years have i met more and more people in the deaf community and i've finally decided to try BSL out for myself. As much as i'm able to follow along with watching conversations being conversed in sign language i would love to communicate more and understand for myself some signs.
I am thrilled to have found this site. It was recommended by a classmate on my BSL course.
I am loving the finger spell game and would love to practise my signing. I have only completed 101 so am very much a beginner but I am keen to get signing. I guess it's like learning a foreign language, the more you emerse yourself in it, the more confident you become. I haven't quite figured out how this site works yet but would be great to arrange some chats!
