Hello Im portuguese I'm living here in london 5 years, half a year I met a lady and I fall in love. She has hearing loss, so, my life been a hell to get her a job. She worked in Marriott  Hotel for a week then they sent her home, 3 months went through and I fond her other hotel job through my community, this portuguese lady made her to hell to the point of saying "you just listen when you want", "If you don't listen properly go and fix that stuff" or if is not that, she chases her to the changing rooms when she says, I need to change the battery. 

The only thing I ask here is how do I get her to learn BSL if she does not speak english, and there is any job she can do with this disability?

Thanks guys...

Signed languages are their own languages and one can learn a signed language without knowing the spoken language from the country the sign is used. For instance, I do not know Spanish but I can sign with people from Spanish speaking countries. I have a friend in Colombia and understand Coloumbian signs not through Spanish but through the languages I am fluent in: American Sign Language and English.

I am learning BSL and very new but I suppose it is the same way. Of course it is good for your love to learn English for writing purposes (and maybe understand the etymology of signs that may be borrowed from English) but overall, it is not 100% essential for learning and understanding sign.
