More than 15,000 people have signed up for British Sign Language (BSL) lessons from Birmingham boy Tyrese Dibba.
Tyrese, 15, who is Deaf and partially sighted, is fronting the virtual classes organised by disability charity Sense to get more people learning sign language while tackling pandemic loneliness at the same time.
The free video lessons have proved to be a smash-hit already with thousands getting involved since just last week.
Tyrese has CHARGE Syndrome, a disorder which affects many areas of the body, and has been supported by Sense since he was six months old – meaning having access to specialist support workers, events and holidays with the charity.
The classes cover everything from speaking about family to discussing holidays.
