Hi there my name is Andrew Stephen Luck and I’m a Musician and Artizan called @LuckyRedStarZMusic on Instagram and people call me 🔴Red🔴

I learnt sign language in a part-time course in college over 10 years ago. I have forgotten much of the signs now and I decided to learn them again.

i have been Registered Disabled myself over 20 years and I have mental health. Yet even though I was diagnosed with Bipolar in my early 20’s and given the Registered Disabled ️ Status I did not let it stop me and afterwards I travelled in 36 countries solo - I have been to 47 countries in total in 6 continents. I learnt to speak 11 languages and now I am adding sign language and trying to learn other languages as well- I have bits of 26 different languages that I learnt along the way in different countries. 
I lived on 2 islands in Asia with Buddhist people and was surrounded by friends,but sadly every time I returned to the uk 🇬🇧 I was alone most of the time. People back home 🏡 exclude Disabled people on purpose a lot.The National Average is only 1 in every 10 people even know a Disabled person. 
I had so much time alone so I learnt things to fill the time-I can play many musical instruments now.

i have been very inspired by Evelyn Glennie who is herself hard of hearing 🧏‍♀️ but plays music from the vibrations-much like Beethoven did. 
She said the wooden Xylophone is the most resonant and the ear drum picks up the vibrations making it possible to learn and play! 
 

I think everyone should learn sign language and I think my favorite sign is the Vulcan 🖖🏻 Live Long And Prosper sign - I remember learning it as a kid and pushing my fingers into the right place until I could do it - I have learnt the Vulcan words as well “Diff Tor Hey Smusma = Live Long And Prosper “ LoL 😂 and they answer “Prosper and Live Long = Smusma Hey Diff Tor” and repeat the sign back! 🚀 

 

All the best to all - I think I answered all the questions in one post ! Oh Well ! 
 

All the best to Everyone! I’m having fun learning the signs on www.BritishSignLanguage.co.uk

i’m in lesson 4 already and I am sending friends to it and I posted the link on my page! 
 

thank you 🙏🏻

    • I'm more than a little hesitant about using the sign for "thank you" during this... unique procession of events... I find myself feeling uncomfortable bringing my hands anywhere near my mask, and I feel more than a little embarrassed by what it might look like to another person doing so. I've kinda defaulted to signing yes, which seems to get the point across at shops and what not, but I also think it might come across as a little rude? I'm kinda new to signing frequently, prior to people wearin

    • 👋🏻 Hello  I've just started learning BSL, I've always thought that BSL should have been an option when learning languages at school. I don't have anyone in my immediate circle who uses BSL but I have always wanted to learn. I'm part of an additional needs parenting group and a few of their children use sign language, because they're either deaf or struggle to communiate verbally.  I am currently not working so thought now the kids are back to school I'd make the most of my time and lea
