Introducing myself

Hello!

I'm Siobhan and I'm from Gloucestershire. I'm currently not working (and have been out of work since Feb 2020) but I am due to start a fab job at the end of the month. I'm passionate about Hospitality and I will be a Reservations Agent for a local company who own a few properties in the area. I am a total bookworm, and am a massive Friends/GOT/TVD and Mock The Week nerd! I am married to a Chef and we have two daughters (12 & 16) (oh and I can't forget our cats Milo & Missy!).

In all honesty, I only thought about learning BSL after I had my second daughter in 2009 but sadly I didn't get round to doing so. My wonderful husband however, bought me the Introducing BSL course for my 40th birthday in December and I am currently embarking on session 4. I'm trying my best to practice the odd few words each day and I'm even trying to rope my youngest into learning colours and simple greetings too! I don't get chance to log on every day so I have to keep recapping but I feel more confident with certain things each time I come back. It would be a massive goal and rewarding achievement for me if I could ever be at a level where I could fully and confidently communicate with the deaf/hard of hearing community so hopefully this is a good starting point. 

I hope you are all doing well today? :-)

    • Our next British Sign Language Level 3 course is starting on Monday 7th February! This course runs every Monday from 6pm - 9pm for 48 weeks and takes place at our London Training Centre.   This course will enable you to communicate in British Sign Language at Level 3 of the National Occupational Standards for Languages.   Our BSL Teachers will take your signing skills to the next level and have you communicating with more confidence and fluidity.  
    • I have always had an interest in BSL since a young age even when I didn’t need hearing aids and I agree there should be the opportunity for pupils to learn BSL in school. 
    • Hello Neil - same here! I have hearing aids (which changed my life) but I know it's only going to get more difficult to hear as time moves on. It's fabulous that you are teaching your children too - I honestly wish BSL was mandatory at schools! Good luck with your studies!
    • Hi Claudette - I am also learning online. Just started last week - it is a great way of learning I have found
    • Hi everyone My name is Chris and I am 49. I wear two hearing aids but it is likely I'll grow deafer over the years.  My wife is a nurse who has a Deaf student at the moment. His interpreter recommended I start learning BSL sooner rather than later just in case. It is something I have always danced around and had an interest in. The recommendation coupled with the young lady on Strictly (big fans in our house!) made me sign up to the fab course. I've done lessons one and two and passed both.
    • Hi everyone, I am slowly getting though level one, I am doing bsl online, as there are no classes near me and I don't drive. Is there anyone that would love to practice with me.  
    • Just started the course yesterday and so far so good! Completed the first few modules no problem, but I'm sure things will get more difficult from here. Loving the learning experience!  I also love that the BSL course is currently available for just £3 at the minute, meaning there's no financial reason stopping anyone that wants to learn. Although I paid the full fee, I think it's a great short term move! 
    • Hi! I am not sure which level I am, but I think roughly level 2..... I am in the chatroom today while I'm working if anyone wants to join. I am in the mixed room
