old beginner

hi everyone,

I have moved to Aberystwyth, and I am keen to learn BSL.  Have wanted to do this for many years, but finally this year I am going to be in a position to, hopefully, do so.

I have several hidden disabilities, and respect the importance of an all inclusive society.  Being involved with several wheelchair users, and their plight to use transport has led me to appreciate even more the struggle that disabled people experience, and the attitude of 'ableds' towards them.

You are never too old to learn, and in addition to brushing up on German I am looking to begin my journey with BSL too, so that I can help contribute to inclusivity if and when needed.

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
