Introducing Myself 😜


Recommended Posts

 Hi everyone , My Names Vinnie 34 male from Dublin Ireland but living and working in the Uk for over 11 Years now. I'm learning BSL during lock down as I've loads of time to spare and i cant get enough of it. I already speak French and I was looking to add another language to my pile. I chose BSL for a number of reasons, I did know a bit of ISL (Irish sign language) but had no needs for it being in the UK, as I now class the UK as my home so it's BSL time.

 I work in Airline industry and I've had a number of encounters with deaf people which kinda embarrassed me for not knowing how to at least communicate in the most basic of manners. This is my main reason for wanting to learn it. I'm so open to meeting people from all walks of life and i would hate to miss out on meeting anyone just because i didn't speak their language. I personally think Sign Language should be something we all learn in school, even if its just the basics. 

I'm getting stuck in and learning as much as i can, online course. researching, trying to help my learning with sign-along songs etc some can be found on my tiktok @crackedupcrew.  This really helped me with my muscle memory with signing. I'm still learning so there are  mistakes. I would love to meet other people who are learning, or Deaf people who want to communicate with the hearing community. 

My goal is to be able to communicate with any deaf person and to learn about the deaf culture.

Vinnie 👋

    • Hi does anyone have the name of a BSL finger spelling font that I could download please?  Many thanks.
    • Hi my name is June.  I am a mum to a 27 year-old profoundly deaf son and I also work with HI children in a school unit as a Speech & Language Therapy Assistant.  I've been heavily involved in the deaf community since my son was diagnosed.
    • So, I moved to Japan last year to work as an English Teacher. One of the schools I visit is a special education school and uses Japanese Sign Language regularly in the classroom. As i began to learn JSL alongside spoken Japanese I decided it was time to properly start to learn some BSL too. Picking up BSL is generally easier for me too, as I already know English!
    • I'm Angel (25) from Kent. Currently living in the Japanese countryside hoping to learn BSL along with JSL (Japanese Sign Language). The dream is master both and be a translator/interpreter. Wish me luck!
    • My name is Marie (38 years old) and I come from Cardiff.  I have two children.  I've always wanted to master brand language and now it's finally coming true.  I work as a waitress in a cafe and it has happened to me several times that a customer communicated in sign language and I did not understand him.  I am very happy that I can learn this language.
    • hi, I am learning BSL as I love languages and also I occasionally work with deaf people and would like to be able to communicate with them.

    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
