Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

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? :-)

    • Hello Im Harriet and i'm learning with my daughter Erika. We are learning BSL because my son has autism and is currently non verbal and we hope he will respond to signing.
    • Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone here can help me. I have written a play, a solo show, and there are a couple of sections in which I will be signing BSL. I completed a certifying basic BSL course, so I can sign, but these concepts are quite subtle and tricky (mainly about spirituality and religion, or certain specific actions such as 'stumbling'). I know some of them, found others online, but I still don't have all of them so I'm wondering whether anyone can send me in the right directi
    • Hi All, so I’ve had my hearing aid for approx. 1 year, started learning sign language a couple of weeks ago and seem to be getting on ok with the basics, I’m a gymnastics coach, personal trainer, I have a day job and I’m adult inclusive ice skater and I have two children who are also learning sign language with me so we can communicate if my hearing completely goes. 
    • Hi all, I thought I would answer the 'why?' question which I thought would be easier than it is! It made me think for sure! Learning BSL has for a long time been something I wanted to do and should have done a long time ago. As a youngster I spent time abroad and the friends I made at school didn't speak English and due to us being kids we just worked round it and communicated in our own version of gestures/signs. Over the months (I was the only English speaking kid there) we developed a pr
