Hi Guys, 

I hope you are all happy and healthy. My name is Derek and I am currently trying to learn to sign. There's a few reasons for this but the main ones are that I was born with limited hearing and through a series of operations (mainly having things removed) I got my hearing back. It comes and goes slightly when I have a bad cold but not seriously.

The second reason is that I work in the hospitality trade and would really like to be able to communicate with all of my guests one day. Using the lock down and the unlimited time just feels like the perfect time.

    • 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 ☺️
