I am deaf from Italy, and I want to learn better English and BSL. I’d like to have a contact to work with the deaf and to make a new life in London.
I await your news.
Best regards, Paolo
It is not easy to start again in a new country and it is always best to join someone you already know here. London is a good place to start and the UK is a beautiful country too.
All very different from Italy so think about the culture shock when you come here. I would need to know more about you before giving you clear advice.
The City Lit Centre for Deaf People runs courses in both English and BSL. Unemployment is high here at the moment so you will do better if you already have a skill (especially in building) you are trained and qualified in. I cannot think of an employment programme you can join – there are some run by deaf organisations, but not at the moment. If you want to work with deaf people as a support worker then try SignHealth.
Hopefully other people will read this and come up with other ideas for you.
PS Thanks to those who answered my question with their own suggestions on my Facebook page.
