Hi everyone,

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. My name is Chris and have just completed a 10 week beginner's course in BSL. Having really enjoyed it, I now want to take my knowledge further and work my way through the various Signature exams, though this will undoubtedly take a while!

I, along with my entire family, is hearing. If I'm honest, I've never had any interaction with the Deaf community apart from my sign language teacher. Consequently, I'm keen to understand more about Deaf culture, as this is something about which I admit to knowing very little.

I have always been a bit of a language nut;  I have a background in spoken languages (Japanese and French), both of which are very different from each other and from BSL. Signing is proving to be just as, if not more, challenging, but I'm looking forward to improving my knowledge.

Nice to meet you, and I look forward to learning from you.

Chris :)

    • Hi, I'm a musician and artist and learning BSL to improve my communication skills and start the process of developing performances/artwork/events that are suitable and interesting for both D/deaf and hearing audiences/artists. Learning BSL online seemed like a good place to start and a way to connect with people.

    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills.
