Hi everyone,

My name is Marijn, pronounced as in lemon-meringue, hence the nickname. I am learning BSL level 1 through an online provider, hope to find some opportunity to practice. I was diagnosed with hearing loss and wear CIC's (that is if they aren't out for repairs 😩) and as my hearing loss is progressive, I may well need SSE/BSL as a communication tool in the future. I work in health care, and although I can mostly get a BSL interpreter for D/deaf clients, it would be useful to have BSL skills, because one cannot rely on the availability of interpreters 24/7 and for every little thing. Furthermore, I love learning new skills, stops the brain from going mushy, but I'm not an academic learner, so learning BSL suits me very well, really enjoying it so far!

    • 👋 everyone, I have just started learning sign, it is something I have wanted to do for a long time, I have some friends who are deaf and I always feel I should try harder to learn the language to chat with them and have longer and better conversations, however due to my ignorance/laziness I have never got round to it.  Well now I have just enrolled onto the BSL course and I am enjoying it very much, I honestly wish I had done it a long time ago. 👍 
    • Hi! My name's Shell and I started learning BSL 10 years ago. To those of you starting out - keep going!! It's such a beautiful language and so worth pushing through any initial struggles. By the way, I post BSL content on my social media, which may be helpful for receptive practice for you! This is my Instagram and here's my latest YouTube video for example:
