Hello 😁
 
My name is Nicholas Bieber (no, I'm not related to Justin Bieber, ha!), I'm 25-years-old and I have moderate hearing loss.
 
I have to wear hearing aids every day, but fortunately I can hear with them, and they have enabled me to mix with fully hearing people and enjoy my career as a journalist. 
 
Sadly though, for so many people this is not the case 💔 Many, like my grandparents, are fully deaf and will never get to experience the special emotions that come with listening to music 😔
 
So I've done something special (I hope)! 🎶📹
 
I learned British Sign Language as a young boy, so I could comminicate with my grandparents, and ended up getting a qualification in it (in levels 1 and 2).
 
I have now started a special YouTube channel where I interpret songs into sign language!
 
For my second video (link posted after this sentence), I performed the incredible Lost Without You by Freya Ridings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQaT8sI1EsE&feature=youtu.be
 
 I'd be SO honoured and grateful if you could share this with your friends and family, and in doing so, helping me to raise awareness of this beautiful language.

I feel sign language should be a compulsory subject in schools, as it is just as important as learning Spanish, French and German. So let's help achieve that! 😁
 
Thank you 😊

    • What are the signs in Scotland for days of the week
    • Hello! My name is Casey. I want to learn more BSL. (ASL translation: I use ASL as my primary language but now I want to learn BSL) Thank you!

      I would appreciate if anyone would be willing to practice with me and correct my BSL signs.
    • Hey everyone!
      My name is Michelle and I am here to get to know some BSL users! I would love to get to know someone around my own age (23) to practice with, or to teach me.
      I have been learning on my own for some time now and I am very much still a beginner, but I am evolving, and I love the language and the culture.

      I am from Denmark and I am not just looking to practice, I am looking to make friends in the deaf community. Tell me about everything! The good, the bad..the fun!. I myself have not formally been to any BSL classes, but I joined in on some beginner lessons in Oxford last year, and I had a somewhat understandable conversation on BSL with the teacher.

      So please message me if you think it could be fun to learn me a thing or two about your life - or your own learning experience (or If you, you know, love cats, Harry Potter, Backpacking and Netflix...really get a hold of me! haha)
