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 ☺️

    • 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. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
    • Let’s see…I am original Swiss but living and working in the uk for 17 years. I am learning BSL out of interest. I love watching when people use it in public and always think it would be so much nicer if more people could understand and join.  
    • Hi my name is Craig.  I am learning sign because I think everybody deserves to be heard.  I have been in multiple situations where I have not been able to communicate effectively with somebody who uses sign as their main form of communication and would like to have the ability to be able to communicate if this happens again so that they feel more included.  I recently saw some examples of this on television that really struck a cord with me as I have travelled extensively and know how it feels t
