hi, my name is Corinne and I live on the Isle of Wight. I’m 32 and a mother to two children who are 11 and 9. I’ve worked for the NHS for over 12 years now and have done various different job roles. Currently I am a phlebotomist so I’m responsible for obtaining and sending blood samples off for patients. I work in a clinic and also on the hospital wards and meet a wide variety of people on a daily basis, communication isn’t always easy for some patients for various reasons and there isn’t always somebody that is accessible at that moment or nearby to assist with communications. I’ve said to myself for many years I’d love to learn British sign language but I’ve never actually done anything about it. And now I finally have and I’m really enjoying learning all about it, I’m amazed at some of the new information I’ve taken in And already I now understand so much more that I can see being such an asset to my work life and also life in the community. Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction, take care :)

Learning BSL online seemed like a good place to start and a way to connect with people. I co-direct an experimental sound festival based in the Midlands and we would like to develop some new work with D/deaf and hearing artists to make multi-media performances/artworks.  I

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills.
