Newbie says, Hello!

My name is Kaz Davies. I co-own and run a recording studio in Bristol, where I live. I have 3 children (eldest has moved out), a cat and a dog.

I am also a volunteer at The Hive in Bristol. I am bilingual and I have always found languages very interesting.

I started teaching myself BSL with videos online around April 2020. Though I have picked up bits of ASL & BSL when I was younger from friends, film and tv.

I finally registered for a BSL course this month and I am enjoying it very much! 

I have already tried some with my sister-in-law who has learning difficulties and she and her carer were very encouraging!

My husband also has otosclerosis in his family. He has the early signs and I believe that it is the right time to begin learning BSL for all of us in the family. Especially as I am also quite a slow learner but so far, so good!

I wish all the other newbies good luck with their course and assessments!

Hello. My name is Wiktoria, I come from Poland. Polish my native language. I currently go to university and study Sport and Exercise Science.

 

I always wanted to learn sign but didn’t know where to start. I have been learning for about 3 weeks now, and I am really enjoying it 😁 I actually found out about online British sign language courses through a girl (I cannot remember her name) on TikTok mentioning them. 
 

I have found that I am struggling signing without saying the words out loud. Does anyone else have this? Will this go away with more practice?

Kind regards to everyday

I did it pretty solidly for around a month, but then just kind of stopped learning.  I stopped for a little under 2 years, then picked it up again around a week ago. I started again because maybe around a month ago, I had a couple of customers come into a pharmacy I was working at who were deaf, and to communicate with them I was writing on a piece of paper and
