Hello, my name is Wendy, I am 46 and classed as disabled and unable to work, and one of my health problems is I am losing my hearing but the specialists do not know why, so due to the rapid loss of my hearing (going quicker the last year) myself and my daughter want to learn to sign, but the problem I have is due to having Fibromyalgia i get brain fog and memory isn't what it once was, but I am going to keep going and hope it all sinks in. I am looking forward to learning something new and excited to have this amazing tool at the end of my fingertips!!! and to be able to communicate with family, friends etc.  Its nice to meet you all.........xxxx

Dear Wendy,

I am attending a BSL INtroduction Course in Edinburgh and we have a girl who is 27 years old. She was diagnosed with a brain turmor at the age of 10 or so I think. She suffers from short term memory since then and she still catches up with basic signs and small talk. It helps her a lot to be filmed while she signs sentences or words and puts them together. Might be an idea for yourself, too.

    • Hi does anyone have the name of a BSL finger spelling font that I could download please?  Many thanks.
    • Hi my name is June.  I am a mum to a 27 year-old profoundly deaf son and I also work with HI children in a school unit as a Speech & Language Therapy Assistant.  I've been heavily involved in the deaf community since my son was diagnosed.
    • So, I moved to Japan last year to work as an English Teacher. One of the schools I visit is a special education school and uses Japanese Sign Language regularly in the classroom. As i began to learn JSL alongside spoken Japanese I decided it was time to properly start to learn some BSL too. Picking up BSL is generally easier for me too, as I already know English!
    • I'm Angel (25) from Kent. Currently living in the Japanese countryside hoping to learn BSL along with JSL (Japanese Sign Language). The dream is master both and be a translator/interpreter. Wish me luck!
    • My name is Marie (38 years old) and I come from Cardiff.  I have two children.  I've always wanted to master brand language and now it's finally coming true.  I work as a waitress in a cafe and it has happened to me several times that a customer communicated in sign language and I did not understand him.  I am very happy that I can learn this language.
    • hi, I am learning BSL as I love languages and also I occasionally work with deaf people and would like to be able to communicate with them.
    • The New Year will be here before we know it!   Let's make 2023 all about learning British Sign Language!   Our BSL Level 1 Course starts in January with John Archbold, and it is the perfect time to join if you have always wanted to learn BSL!   Contact us to book your place or for any enquiries.   www.remark.uk.com/bsl-level-1/
    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
