To start with, hopefully in a few years I will be a qualified pharmacist and I could see this being a very useful language to know. In my job I already know patients who are hard of hearing or deaf and so I know it's very likely that I will meet more in the future. 

During this coronavirus lockdown I watched a film, A Silent Voice, which featured a partially deaf girl. The film itself was very moving and after watching it I really wanted to look into learning BSL and a few weeks later, here I am, doing it.

    • 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.
