Hi! Introducing myself...

Recommended Posts

having worked in hospitality for years, i think its astounding how few people (not just in that industry, but in general society) know absolutely no sign language.

I can only imagine the barriers that must put up for someone within the deaf community, so have decided to learn BSL with the extra time now because of COVID-19.

I'm not sure when I will be able to put it into practice in the real world, but I would love to be able to help someone out in a situation us in the hearing community probably take for granted! Or just be able to have a conversation with someone who may otherwise feel isolated :)

    • Hi My name is Lindsay. I currently work in childcare in a pre school. Having worked with a few non verbal children I have always wanted to learn Sign Language. Being furloughed due to Covid has meant there is no excuse. I’m taking it slowly and re doing the tests regularly. It would be nice to have someone to practice with but I probably need to learn a little bit more first. Lindsay🙂

    • Does anyone actually use this website to communicate with each other? Every time I am on a rarely see others post or commune with each other or occupy the video chat rooms.  Currently I have hit a wall in my lessons and would like to actually try to practice beginner sign language with another user. I have learned the majority of the signs from the now completed course, give or take a few. And would like to practice full conversation with other individuals (questions, day to day talk, how t
