Introducing Myself

Jane Davidson

Recommended Posts

Hello, My name is Jane Davidson.  I started this course in August this year.  I'm 64 year on Tuesday and I decided to do this course because when I was 8 years old a family friend taught me the deaf alphabet that he learnt as a child because his best friend went deaf.  I have never forgotten it and decided that now was the time to do something with it.  I also work at a hospital in education, 30 years this year, so I think it may come in handy.  I do find it hard to remember all the signs and although I have managed to get to module 8 now, I'm still a bit slow on the uptake if I watch anything on TV with an interpreter signing.  But the say practice makes perfect, I can only hope.

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
