Hi I'm beth , I was born hard of hearing and got hearing aids at age of 11 I'm now nearly 30 years old and iv only 5 percent hearing left. I'm learning bsl for me and mainly my job. I'm a deaf and deafblind support worker and help others become more independent. Iv passed level bsl but very much struggling with level 2. Die to covid haven't signed in nearly a year and my job really needs me to pass level 2 quickly but I'm really struggling to point I'm forgetting it all ... I may of had covid a year ago before testing started and now I'm having problems with my memory which is not helping. I'm now on a time limit to get going with my bsl or unfortunately I'll lose my job. Would be gutted if I did as iv so tried my best. I been brought up in the hearing world and it's a struggle now .. trying to find some hard of hearing or deaf Freind's  fingers crossed

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
