Words have always interested me. As a writer, I have to select from an array of words which ones communicate what I want to say. I’m even using words now!
For those who don’t know, I am deaf/hard of hearing, and what interests me is British Sign Language (BSL). Primarily because it doesn’t involve words…
Therefore, it would be interesting to learn a new unconventional language, that involves a different method of communicating aside from speech. Not to mention that should things get worse hearing wise, I’ve got fluent BSL under my belt!
However, sadly BSL can be quite costly. Instead, I was advised about going on a lip reading course. This would not only be cheaper, but would be a handy skill regardless of hearing ability (though it definitely helps!).
So I’ll have to look into that! I’ll let you know of any progress!
Anyone know any sign language? Or know how to lip-read? Comment below!
