Well done Stephen! Me too (almost). I took voluntary redundancy/retired last year to do more BSL  but found I needed to go back to some part-time work this year (cost of living etc!). Really enjoying the signing though and it's certainly a challenge for us oldies. 🙂

Hi Rhoda,

Thanks for the message of support and sorry to hear you have had to go back into part time work.

I did my first bit of actual signing on Saturday in the pub with the son of a mate, his son is partially deaf and signs - i think he appreciated the effort even though i wasn't that good but the look of amazement on his Dad's face and the rest of the lads was encouragement enough for me to persevere.

Keep it going Rhoda and i will even let you off for referring to us as "oldies"

    • 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.
