Hi there! 👋

Hi everyone!

hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these strange times 😊

Just wanted to introduce myself and what my reason is for starting BSL.
My names Nicola and Like many I wanted to learn a new skill during this last couple of months in and out of lockdown and as my grandma loses her hearing more it got me thinking about why we’re not taught some sign language earlier in our lives to allow us to communicate with all and in case we were to lose our own hearing at some point in our lives. Whilst she might not be able to learn it now I wanted to learn more about sign language as I’ve always been intrigued by it and as I learn it more and more about it, it makes me realise even more now where things should be made more accessible to those who are deaf or hard of hearing.

i would love this to be something that is brought into the education system to ensure a more inclusive society for deaf and herd of hearing!

Hope everyone’s signing journeys are going well ☺️

    • Hi, I am Lyn. I am learning BSL as I had a head injury a few years ago. I lost most of my hearing and my speech was impaired for a while. It was quite frightening as I couldn't really communicate with people although I could understand. I found people made assumptions about what was going on particularly Doctors and medical staff. I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
