I am loving learning a new language and it might actually help someone one day! I am learning for work  mostly but I have also got my youngest learning too and its just amazing! Hearing loss runs in my family so I expect to lose my hearing in the future -I have always had issues with my ears and hearing and I know I lose hearing when I take off my glasses (Yes my Kids find it so funny when I say  "pass my glasses I need to hear you!")

I am JUST 41 but forever 21 in my mind! I have found that I rely on watching peoples faces and with mask wearing I have found this so hard. I can not imagine how awful its been for people who do rely upon lip reading. I would love to get to know other people who are learning and maybe do some video calls so we can practice!  I have 3 girls living with me at home 17 , 12 & 7 and an older step son who is 22. My parents live with me too and my Dad has lost most hearing now and is also deaf to my Mum's tone of voice (so he says) so its always fun having a conversation over dinner! I am quiet a shy person but I also soon come out of my shell when I get to know people, I have worked in Health and Social Care for 25 years and I really do hope to get to know others and share our skills and have some laughs too!

    • Once upon a time, in the digital age of 2023, I found myself embarking on a journey that I never could have predicted. It all started with a simple yet profound desire to learn British Sign Language (BSL), and this journey unfolded in the most unexpected way, thanks to my young brother. My younger brother, Alex, was born with a natural curiosity and an unparalleled sense of wonder. He had always been fascinated by different cultures, languages, and ways of communication. One day, while we w
    • Hello. If you have problems with your reproductive system, you should learn more about the medicinal product Enclofimen at https://valhallavitality.com/blog/unraveling-the-benefits-and-sources-of-enclomiphene-a-comprehensive-guide.

    • Hi there I've been wanting to learn sign language for years, but just found you can do it online so very excited to learn! I don't think it's going to be easy though! If there's anyone on here from Belfast that wants to have a coffee and practice in person, give me a shout! Liz

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
