Introduction - Hello


Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Sallyann Blakemore and I have been doing the online BSL course during lock down. I have always wanted to learn sign language but just never managed to get round to doing it. I am shielding as I am a high risk case having had breast cancer last year and only finished my treatment just before Christmas. Therefore I have been advised by the government not to go out at all, at least until the end of June. So I found I had lots of time on my hands so finally decided to sign up and learn sign language. I am married and live with my husband. I have one son who is 26 and left home a long time ago. I am loving this course and hope once life gets back to normal to try and do some volunteer work at the local deaf school....but watch this space. I am struggling with remembering all the signs but really enjoying it. Be nice to hear from others doing this course. Good luck everyone.

Hi Sallyann!

I just came across your message. I hope you're well and great that you've been using your time to learn BSL. Me too! I've just finished the course but struggling to know how not to forget it all! Let me know if you're up for someone to practice with as I'd love to be using what I've learnt. I work in theatre so I'm without work but always watnted to learn BSL and have really enjoyed it!

Best,

Jesse

Hi Jesse

Lovely to hear from you and thank you for replying....sorry for the delay - I have been enjoying the sunshine......yes I would love to practice with you, though I am very slow at the moment....do you have access to zoom or whatsapp? for zoom I would need an email address from you or whatsapp your phone number.....are any of these any good for you, or if you are on facebook you can find me as Sallyann Blakemore, and private message me, which may be better, but any of the options are fine for me.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sallyann

    • 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. I co-direct an experimental sound festival based in the Midlands and we would like to develop some new work with D/deaf and hearing artists to make multi-media performances/artworks.  I

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • 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.
