HI Everyone 

I'm Vinnie,  I'm 34, I work for a Uk Holiday Airline, I'm Cabin Crew ✈️ and I've had way to many embarrassing situation on the aircraft with Deaf people which has made me want to learn BSL, I don't think it's acceptable for any person to be left out or excluded just because they;re Deaf/HOH, and even if I wont be able to sign everything i think it's important to be able to sign the basics, Airports are crazy enough for hearing people as it is, I cant even imagine what it's like for a deaf person trying to get information, i get lost most of the time and I work at the airports. This should be included in general education at schools for all kids. its common courtesy. and even if my basic signing helps someone in needs of help or being able to provide a better travel experience then it's 100% worth it . ALL AIRPORTS should at least have one person on duty at all times that can sign to help out if needed or just to provide general information.

    • Yes I love this idea, I am beginning my PGCE in September and would love to see more of British Sign Language in Mainstream schools
    • Hi All, I have a deer best friend so started learning sign but I now work with children in gymnastics that require sign so am furthering my knowledge 
    • Hi all! I'm Cherise and I've started learning BSL so that I can interact with more people. I have cousins that are deaf and hard of hearing and I'd love to be able to talk to them in their language rather than relying on lipreading as I have been (very lazy of me!) I've always wanted to learn and find that I now have the time to start.  Happy learning to you all and I hope to connect with some of you 😊
    • I have just started the online BSL course, I’m a complete beginner but I am enjoying it and hoping I can put it to use in the future. :)
    • Hi I'm learning BSL as I work with people with dual sensory loss.
    • Hi, How would I ask someone whether they liked something? For example, do you like rugby?  Thanks!
    • I have just finished with lesson 3 and thought I would try to introduce myself a little. I have looked through a few videos to get an idea of what I could say...so thanks esp Hannah White! I only got interested in BSL since my 5year old was learning three signs a week with homeschooling and I seemed to enjoy learning with him. Thought I would give it a real shot. Please let me know what you think.
