Hi everyone! I've been interested in many languages and communication forms since school. My interest with sign languages began watching a show based on Beauty and the Beast in Disneyworld in Florida, I guess I was around 8ish years old. I was just fascinated by the interpreters and have never forgotten their sign for “Beauty and the Beast”! I come from a hearing family and the only deaf person I regularly meet is a barista at my work so I can sign my coffee order but not much more yet… I do however get overwhelmed when there is a lot of noise and the ides of having a visual way of communicating that allows me and the people around me to be quieter, without losing the meaning or intensity of what we are saying is really intriguing…

looking forward to practising with you!

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
