We were contacted by Loughborough University back in September about holding a Deaf Awareness presentation. They currently have a part time student who is Deaf and wanted to be able to engage with him a little more and to understand a little about the isolating world he lives in.
We held a Deaf Awareness session on the 7th of November, the students enjoyed the experience and were all interested in learning Basic British Sign, in fact many stayed around once Deaf Awareness was finished to talk to myself, Eddy and Sarah. We are always happy to stay behind and answer any questions that may arise, we love engaging with people and teaching them a few signs that they would like to know.
Loughborough is a lovely University and the staff and students made us feel very welcome. We are hoping that next year we will be teaching Basic British Sign Language to those that are interested.
