Hi, my name is BettySk!

I am profoundly deaf in one ear and now losing hearing rapidly in the other. I wear hearing aids and lip read. I have recently started learning sign language.
I am a storyteller telling tales in schools and libraries to both children and adults. I live in Ayrshire.

    Hi @BettySk,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's good to have you here.

    It's great that you're learning sign language. How is that coming along?

    Do let us know if there's anything we can help you with.

    I passed the first part of my intro to BSL test on Thurs eve. Fingers crossed for part 2 next week!
    Also met lots of other BSL learners at an informal gathering in Prestwick on Wed eve. I have such a lot to learn. It is hard to find people to practise with but is so interesting.

    Congratulations! That's great news - best of luck with part two!

    Part 2 passed. Only part 3 to go now!
    Then start again after the summer on level 1

    That's amazing - congratulations!

    I'm mildly deaf and whilst I've yet to take a qualification in BSL, I've learned a fair bit through my friends who use sign language. It's such a wonderful language to learn, isn't it?

    Good luck with part three!
    Liam
