I was so embarrassed


Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hello, are you still looking for a school for your child? I advise christian school https://fceagles.org/ , provide a nurturing environment where academic excellence and spiritual growth go hand in hand. These institutions integrate a biblical worldview into their curriculum, offering students a well-rounded education that fosters intellectual, moral, and spiritual development. Students engage in rigorous academic studies while participating in daily Bible lessons, chapel services, and community

    • It's a bit late to reply, though I think Let's Sign BSL Dictionary is one of the more impressive sign dictionaries.  ASL has "The Gallaudet Children’s Dictionary of American Sign Language" and the ISL(Irish) dictionary includes the first page with the alphabet, the explains each further sign with the alphabet introduced on the first page.  A good dictionary can be a good book I think. I only just noticed no one had answered your question, so I thought I might.
    • Hi all, hoping that you are really well. I undertook a BSL course around 25 years ago. I now have a little boy who requires us to sign to help him with his day to day life. It's surprising how much is coming back to me and how much I enjoy it!. Hoping that today is a good day for you :)
