will look on laptop. sure i downloaded Skype but haven't touched it in years.  If you dont mind me asking what has made you think of picking up with sign again after 14 years. ?  I saw people signing and the enthusiasm that goes in to what the deaf want to "say" made me want to try to learn.  I am totally confused with longer sentences as to order of signing words! thanks.

Hi Lyd

My job means I work with the public about 20-30 times per year and I get frustrated when I can’t communicate properly with a deaf person. I always have a go but would like to be more confident. Also, my cousin who doesn’t live close by is deaf and we are both going to a family wedding next year and I would love to be able to chat with her.

    • Hi there, I had hearing difficulties when I was younger & was taught the basics but decided to take it further & started the course a few days ago. I have always wanted to begin a course, but working Mum of twins time never seemed to allow it, on second week of self isolating with my girls we decided self improvement was our best chance of survival & I think so important for myself & girls to be able to communicate on as many levels as possible, so here we are! x
    • Hi everyone!  I am a final year dental student who will hope to start work in August time. I have started learning British Sign Language to enable me to communicate better with patients who use BLS as their first language! I think if all health professionals learnt this, our system could be much improved and patients can feel more comfortable when attending their doctor, dentist, nurse etc! Intrigued to hear everyone's thoughts on the website. Personally, I think the online course is fantas
    • I'm a primary school teacher currently teaching reception/ year 1. I distinctly remember sign language in Guides and still remember finger spelling but wanted to learn more- lockdown was the perfect opportunity! I hope to be able to learn enough to become confident communicating with any children who may join my class with hearing difficulties and be able to teach my class some signs too. So far it has been fascinating and I can't wait to learn more! 
    • Hi my names Breffny.  I was first introduced to sign language by a friend when I was younger.  Her mum and dad were part of the deaf community and she taught me finger spelling.  I’ve always wanted to learn more but it’s so expensive to go to college to learn so when I saw this great opportunity I couldn’t wait to get started
    • Hello Everybody!! my wife Lyn and I have enrolled on the course with a view to distance learn sign language. Its always been a skill that I’ve been interested in and we’ve finally taken the plunge and enrolled, I’m not the most technical minded of characters, but hope to get by with the learning curve - it’s going to be steep I think! Hoping to make new friends and acquaintances - that’s us hope to speak soon. 
    • Hi, i currently work as a teaching assistant in a school for Autistic children. Each week we teach the children a new 'sign of the week.' So i thought, while we are on lock down, no would b a great time to learn BSL for myself so i could use it better in my job.
    • I am a Learning Support Assistant for a PLMD/ASD school. and already use Makaton whilst in my role which I find fascinating.  I am currently learning BSL because it is sometime to pass the time whilst being at home, I am a critical key worker but as we only have 9 students that are in at the moment only a select few of us are needed at the moment.  I thought it would be a good idea to brush up on other ways of communicating, I do not have any hearing impaired friends or family as yet,
    • I use Makatoneveryday in my job role as I am a learning support assistant for a PLMD/ASD school.  There are some differences, like you speak as well as sign, and you don't sign your words backwards. You only sign the words that are the most important in a sentence such as for example: Do you need help?  Sit down in your chair? Some words are the same in BSL, others a little different. We don't normally fingerspell names, just the first initial. Hope I coul
