Hi everyone

Recommended Posts

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.

    • love it understood it too
    • well done I learnt years ago but understood nearly all of what you signed... ready for next time  
    • Hi I did pass BSL level 1 9 years ago... I am starting an online course to refresh my skills tomorrow.   I will be a bit rusty but need to start somewhere.... any one about tonight to try ????
    • Hiya, I'm struggling to figure out how to reply to specific people and how this thread works.. but I've just joined and would love to have a practise buddy if anyone still needs one! My knowledge is fairly minimal at the mo, so probably best match with other newbies  
    • Hello I'm learning BSL Level 1, with face to face lessons, my 101 exam is coming up really soon and i'm starting to struggle as I need more practice time. Would anyone be willing to be a practice buddy with me over skype or FB messenger?
    • Usually you would just fingerspell. Sometimes areas (i.e. the south west, or, places clise to Bath) might have an actual sign, but this is likely to be regional and not always known by everyone in other parts of the country. 
    • Hi all,    I am a university student at University of the West of Scotland studying my BA for Commercial Sound Production.  One of my projects I am putting on two live music events that will be multi-sensory for deaf people and hard of hearing. In order to get the approval for my project I need to get a few interviews put into my proposal as a case study, I'm hoping that some of you will be interested in this and if you could answer a few questions for me please?   Questions;  Would audio visual software that reacts to the music be helpful/enjoyable? Would a sign language interpreter be useful on the stage with the musicians or subtitles? Would do you feel is missing from live music events? What genres of music do you enjoy? Thank you, any feedback would be helpful. 
    • Hi all, I'm Beatrice, Italian, 41 yo living in London. I am at BSL Level 2 and need to practice with someone at my same or higher level to make my signing quicker and smoother. I live close to Canary Wharf and work nearby Victoria Station. I am free after work at 5:30 on Tuesdays and every other Thursay and some weekend days as well. Anyone interested? Thanks, Bea
