Hi my name is Amy. After years of wanting to learn sign language, I decided it's time to get stuck in. I have been able to fingerspell for some years (had a class in college), but really wanted to advance my knowledge of BSL. Thanks to a neurological condition I sometimes lose the ability to speak; although that's not my main reason for learning sign language. I would like to be able to communicate with a variety of people and think sign language is a fantastic and versatile skill to learn. I'm looking forwards to progressing further, and if you're a beginner too (or adept at BSL) I would love to get in touch and find a practice buddy! I've got a long way to go and a lot to learn, but I'm super excited to be getting stuck in.

    • 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.
