My story for learning Bsl

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I have only recently (August 2016) found out I needed hearing aids I am Hoh I can hear slightly without my aids.

since January 2017 I have been trying to get into a deaf social group or speaking with other  deaf people face to face. I have looked within my local area and I have realised that unless you are under 16 or older than 50 you have no groups or anything to speak with people who may also have issues with hearing.

This has pushed me to learn BSL I want to make sure people who are Deaf Hoh or need to sign to communicate are not isolated and I am even looking into volunteers for signing interpreters I know I will need at least basic level 1 to do anything with the public but for now I'm just learning.

I have just learned my alphabet and I'm currently doing my numbers 1-20 my husband again has been a great help I have only been signing 6days and I think I am doing well 

anyway this is my story and I hope it helps and inspired others to either learn or carry on using Sign language.

 

I will post one picture of my hands me signing the letter S it's the only image I have of me signing

Hi there,

I want to learn it because whenever I see someone who can't speak and struggling to make understand his/her views but unable to express so there I find that if I can help him, it will be so proud moment for me that I can understand him and can translate his/her views to the others.

    • Hey folks, 😄   I'm Carly,  I'm nearly 25 and probably like a lot of you, figured whilst stuck in a lock down? What better time to learn sign language! I've been meaning to learn for a long time as I am profoundly deaf and lip-reading is how I communicate 90% of the time. I started losing my hearing when I was about 4/5 and then lost the majority of my hearing when I was 12. Something got stuck down my right ear and went unnoticed by doctors and the like, so cut to 12 months later and i

    • Hi everyone! I'm Emma, 17 and I have always wanted to learn sign language. I just think it's so beautiful and mesmerizing to watch, plus it could come in handy one day! I've just started the online course whilst under isolation and am a little intimidated! It's a lot to remember but I'm loving it (especially loving the sign for Scotland - makes me giggle every time, anyone else think of Ross from Friends playing the  bagpipes when they do it?) . Anyway, hoping to learn more about the deaf c

    • Hi everyone,  My name is Louisa, I am 33 years old and have just started learning BSL having been inspired taking Baby Sign classes with my now 10 month old. I work as a spoken voice coach and feel it would be a fascinating area to explore with the deaf/hearing impaired community. I also think the language is fascinating and I've loved learning even basic things to use through baby sign so wanted to learn lots more. Will be really up for finding others at a similar stage with the train
