Ken

Hello everyone, new to BSL

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Ken. I am a driving Instructor who is hard of hearing. I have started to learn sign language so that I can offer lessons to the deaf community as well as hearing. I also work as a volunteer on a heritage railway and we do get deaf people ride the trains, so it would be good to be able to tell them about the history and sights they can see from the train. So I have a long way to go to achieve that, but I have made a start.

Hi 

I passed my Level 1 when I was 16/17 (now 36) I can only remember bits but I really would like to continue with higher Levels. Is there a refresher course I could do then carry on to Level 2 or would I need to retake Level 1 again? Thank you for any advice.

Hi Ken, what heritage railway would that be then? .. Also glad to see your looking to expand your driving tuition to cater for the deaf community, I guess that will bring in a bit more custom for you and also make a few new friends along the way ..

    • Hello, My name is Bethany and I'm 14, I just thought I"d say hi and show you what I've learnt. My parents (mostly my mum) know sign (but hers seems to be slightly different to what I'm learning 🤔☹️) and my mum used to sign/interpret for their church (about 15 years ago) so introduced makaton to me before I was old enough to talk, I've always been interested in learning it properly and am now learning it for my skills section of bronze award for DofE. I'm also learning Braille (which has no

    • I have thought about learning sign language at various times since I was a teenager - which feels like a very long time ago now -  but I never quite got round to it... Then I had a serious ear infection that resulted in permanent damage on one side. The tests I had to determine the level of damage also showed that I have noise induced hearing loss, and was missing some of the range that allows me to hear normal speech on both sides. Probably explains why people sometimes thought I was in a
