Hello there

Hello, my name is Bob! I'm 21 from Lancashire. I lost the majority of my hearing without reason when I was around 13, it caused a lot of damage to my mental health as I became isolated this meant that I had to drop out of secondary school and thus never achieved my basic GCSE's despite being on track to be one of the highest graded pupils in the whole school. From a young age I always wanted to join the army or the RAF or be a commercial pilot. When I lost my hearing however, these dreams were shattered and it still breaks my heart to this day, to know I will never be able to achieve those things. I have always struggled by myself and felt very alone since I lost my hearing, I was obviously brought up with hearing culture and have always been too anxious to attempt to join my local d/Deaf community however I'm hoping that by starting here, I may eventually make some progress and find my home in the community.

    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people!
