Hi all,

I'm doing level 1 now, started January 2018 and about to do 102.  I'm deaf (profound now) and teaching hubby after class each week and it's helped a lot already when I'm not wearing my hearing aids.  I'm around during the day and as hubby works shifts lots of evenings and would be happy to video practice, Skype? :D

Hi, I'm in a similar situation to you. I'm losing my hearing, I'm down to moderate overall with areas on the borderline to severe. I did level 1 ten years ago so I'm very rusty but I'm revising and trying to learn more before my hearing gets any worse. If you don't mind being patient with me while I catch up I'd be happy to practise with you :)

That's great Amy, 

I'd be happy to Skype chat or in a room here? My husband is a shift worker so I'll try to arrange when he's at work and I can use his laptop.  It will be good for me to.go back to the beginning again ands I'm findingredients I've forgotten some signs from the early days.  I have my final exam in 3 weeks sof keen to practice.  I'm in SE England, Kent so use that regional BSL.  Let me know what days and send times are good for you.

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • 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.
