Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Leeza, short for Elizabeth. My best friend has a degenerative condition and her hearing has becoming worse and worse over the years. When I met her it didn't present much of a difficulty. I just had to raise my voice. I didn't realise how quickly she was losing her hearing, until last week she told me she missed the sound of my voice, and that she hasn't heard me sing in months. We are both learning BSL now so that we can still talk. 

I look forward to meeting you! Here is a short video of me awkwardly signing an introduction! If you know of anyway I can improve, please tell me!

    • Hey, I work as an Early years practitioner for the NHS where we use Makaton within our setting. Although I am enjoying learning and using Makaton I decided I wanted to try learning BSL. Although I am only about to start lesson 5, so far so good with the BSL, in fact I love it! and now we have a child who has a hearing difficulty. I am hard on myself ensuring I am very sure of the signs I have learnt before using them at work. I often recap previous lessons to confirm my retainment and set myself (what I call) a remember challenge for words that are challenging for me to memorise which I have found useful. I am already finding that I can read some language signed on television and feel very excited / proud. This leaves me thinking, within inclusion, why is BSL not on the curriculum for children to learn at school?        
    • Great this is very appreciable. I personally believe learning anything new in life is our achievement, so whether we use this language or not, we should give a try learning BSL.   _____________________________________ Anthony Constantinou
    • A friend of mine is a Clairvoyant and she had this person appear when she was with clients.  He seems to be using a form of sign language, but I have no idea what it is. Can anyone clarify what the hands are saying? Your help is greatly appreciated. Penelope  
    • Okay cool!  Discord is like an app that is really good for "group chats". You can use it on a computer too. I will message you the invite link to the server (think of a server like a group chat) I have made. It will guide you to make a discord account and then join you into the server! Slow is okay
    • Hi,  group chat good idea.  What is discord?    I am fully hearing but always had an interest in BSL and final got round to beginning to learn.  Bit slow going as have to fit it in around work & home life. 
    • Hi both! I hope you guys get this notification 🙂 I also live on the island and am learning - maybe we could make a group chat? I use discord and it is good for typing and video calls. Let me know!   (I'm 19)
    • I hadn't thought about how hearing people with other needs could use BSL, I think it's a great idea for you and I really hope that when you're overwhelmed and struggling to communicate with your voice that BSL will be a useful tool for you.
    • Hi Jordan, This is a really lovely way to connect with your daughter. How is your learning going? And is your daughter learning with you or does she get taught by a teacher/specialist? Beth
