Hi everyone.

My name is Darryl and I work and live in Bangor, Northern Ireland. Although i had a deaf friend during my teenager years, he was a fantastic lip reader, so we rarely had to sign and the signs he did show me, were generally curse signs. Forward to the present day and nearly twenty old years later and i have always wanted to learn BSL and now have the means and financial ability to do so. 

My background is Mental health and Learning disability services but two years ago, i 'retired' and went into self employment as a Hypnotherapist / Counsellor as well as a Hypnobirthing practitioner . I also teach hypnotherapy in a local university for a national teaching organisation.

So by learning BSL, as well as personal achievement, it may also help me in my working life as I have supported couples during pregnancy that have hearing difficulties. 

Thanks for reading.

    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people! 
    • I'm learning BSL because I'm deeply involved in campaigning on social issues and want to help with accessibility in those movements.
    • Hello everyone! I've been interested in sign language since I was taught and introductory course when I was a lot younger and now have the time to continue that education and learn it properly.
    • Hello everyone, I am new to BSL and would like to say hi 👋 I have always wanted to learn sign language, and I finally have started and loving it so far, my little girl learns sign at school so it is a nice way to develop an essential skill and form of communication together. I have a passion for learning.
