Need help

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hello. I just refreshed my BSL Level 1 with an online course which was useful. Sorry not close enough to meet but am available to do video chat if you're interested. Thanks, Rob W.
    • Hello all. I have used BSL off and on over many years and am really only a beginner. However, I really want to commit to learning BSL and am keen to practise with someone. I am a qualified teacher (senior leader) and have used Makaton/SSE before but wish to move to a school with high number of D/deaf children. I am happy for anyone to contact me who wants to practise or who has any advice for me. Thanks, Rob W.

    • Hi everyone, I'm staring a level 1 BSL course at the end of April. Bit pre-emptive maybe, but I thought I'd sign up and maybe get a head start and introduce myself. My name's Liam, I have no previous experience with signing, but I'm training part time for the next few years to become a counsellor/therapist so I'm also looking to learn as much BSL and possibly some Makaton with the aim of becoming as inclusive a therapist as possible.
    • As weird as it sounds, I totally get this. I'm not learning BSL for D&D purposes, but one of my best friends who I play with is pretty good at it. I thought it'd make an excellent version of Thieves Cant or even the Drow Hand Signal Language (which is, essentially, very similar to BSL!). I'd definitely considered using it in a character too :D

    • Hi, Could anyone make any suggestions of any tongue twisters/finger tumblers that work in bsl? I work in school and we are running an international mother language day, and each workshop will be teaching a tongue twister in their home language. I will be running the signing workshop, but I'm afraid my knowledge doesn't run that far. All I can find online is one example from asl.   Any help very gratefully received, thanks
