Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

Hi there, for a number of years I've always wanted to learn sign language. I've never had anyone in my family or circle of friends who need to sign, but I've always wondered, what if I meet someone who can only communicate through signing and I'm unable to communicate back, what if they need help and it's not obvious. I always felt that I should make an effort to learn sign. Last year, whilst on holiday in the Lake District, I met someone who signed, and somehow I managed to bumble my way through using facial expressions and pointing. I felt embarrassed but didn't want to ignore the gentleman through my inability to communicate. So here I am, attempting to learn the basics.

    • 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🙂

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.
