I have never really used a forum before so new to all of this. I'm really glad I found this site, I have been looking for an on-line UK deaf forum for ages, surprised I only just stumbled on it now!
I have been profoundly deaf in my left ear since birth, and have always wanted to meet people and make friends with people who are also deaf. I am currently in my final year of university in Newcastle, I am hoping to learn BSL soon but I have been struggling to find somewhere to learn it in Newcastle and struggled to find any student deaf groups or communities.
I hope to meet some new people and hopefully get the hang of using a forum quickly.

You're doing fine so far. Hope you enjoy reading our little musings and i look forward to any posts you make.
You can actually pick up quite a bit of BSL on various websites. I'm sure the others will happily point you in the right direction, but in the meantime, why not GOOGLE "BSL" and see what you come up with.
