My story for learning Bsl


Angel

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.
