    • Hi  I’m currently working in a primary school in Wales. There has been suggestions that I might be working with a 6 year old with a cochlear implant from September. Im here to improve my BSL to help them achieve the best they can 
    • That's great!  I'm taking level 2 ISL(Irish) right now.  Got a book of Bible Stories in English and Braille I'm working through too. I wish you the best of luck!
    • Hey, i'm new here. I'm coming to the end of my level 1 course now ready to start level 2. I am aiming to go all the way to persue my drea career as an interpretor. I am hoping to find some people here that would like to practice, so that our signing can get to be the est it can be!

I actually find Braille more testable since those I know aren't too interested in sign.  Braille is quite fun now with the different English and universal ones to learn, grade 1, 2, 3, UEB, math, and music.  It's nice to read dual te
