Why I'm learning

Recommended Posts

I'm a carer for my grandmother. She has been completely deaf in her left ear since an accident when she was a small child. Over the last few years she's been losing her hearing in her right ear. While she wears a hearing aid and is most of the time able to hear me, we recently had a spell where it broke and we had to wait for an appointment to get it fixed. It became difficult for her to hear me even when raising my voice. 

We thought it might be nice to learn some basic BSL together so if we have the same issue again we can still communicate without shouting at each other lol

I've always had an interest in spoken language and dialect, it seemed a natural follow-on to learn to sign.

I am partially deaf in one ear but if I'm honest I do get by okay. At almost 70 years old, it seemed about time!
