Hello Everyone

I'm the service lead for an information and advice service at a Disabled Peoples Organisation in Preston. Prior to the awful situation we are in at the moment we decided it would be good for those of us with interaction with clients to learn BSL. Many of us are now working from home and our work patterns have changed dramatically, so now could be a good time to learn. I'm one of the lucky few that has to isolate for 12 weeks, so hopefully I should have a some command of the language by the time I am set free. 

My closest friend from my Uni days from over 20 years ago uses BSL as her first language, I've been promising her all this time that I will learn when I get time. I finally get to keep my promise.

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
