Introduce yourself

Recommended Posts

Hi - my name is Karen and I'm a writer of short plays and short films in Leeds. I'm currently producing a night of new writing with Orange Horse, a new creative hub in Leeds, but obviously our performance had to be cancelled so like everything else, it's currently on hold. I'm not deaf but have been fascinated by the way deaf people communicate ever since I saw the movie "Children of a Lesser God" in the 80s. I had some private sign language lessons with a lovely deaf friend some years ago, but life got in the way and I wasn't able to carry on. I'm just about to take the final assessment for the Introduction to BSL, which is making me nervous as I'm a woman of a certain age and aren't able to retain information as I used to!

I'm hoping that when restrictions ease that I can continue with my lessons in person in Leeds.

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
