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 😊

    • @VanessaH @Shellie yes the meetings still occur on zoom. We have done 3 meetings in total so far. The schedule is still the same. However for this week only there might be a slight change. But I will update this thread once I have confirmation. 
    • Hi my name is Jenny.  I am a mainstream primary school intervention teacher and speech therapy coordinator.  I have a good knowledge in Makaton but want to learn BSL so I can support our hearing impaired children and their parents/carers. 
    • Hello, my name is Caroline, I am 38 and from Newport. I will be going to college in September to study childcare and health and social care. I believe that BSL should be taught compulsory in all schools from nursery age. My youngest was in nursery with a lovely young boy who had become deaf, he relied on his friends being able to sign to communicate. This is what prompted me to uptake BSL. 
    • Hello Would love to join in this chat if that's okay. I've been learning BSL for about 3 months and would love some practice.
    • Hi, my name is Misha and I am learning BSL for many reasons but my main one is so that I can communicate with customers at work who use BSL as their first language 
    • Hi, my name is Sheryl. I am learning BSL because I want to be able to talk to people, and to help make people feel understood. I look forward to learning more.
