And in the United Kingdom, around 11 million people are currently deaf?

And people who are deaf are more than capable of living normal and healthy lives.

Sign language is basically the language that uses the visual-manual modality to convey meaning to deaf people.

And in the U.K. deaf people use BSL (British Sign Language).

The majority forget that it’s actually a language and it isn’t very popular amongst people intact with their hearing.

Whether that’s trying to speak to someone in a grocery store or trying to ask a stranger for help… it’s almost impossible to communicate to a deaf person without having knowledge of sign language.

But here in America and in the U.K. learning sign language isn’t compulsory to a child’s education.

And she learned British Sign Language all by herself in aid of one delivery driver.

And she recently learned something surprising about their regular delivery driver, Tim.

So Tallulah and her family have become familiar with the friendly delivery man.

So she decided to learn some sign language on her own accord to try to communicate with him a bit easier.

This is our @Hermesparcels delivery man, we see him 1 or 2 times a week… start of lockdown Tallulah drew him a #thankyou – he still has it proudly on show in his van, they have built up quite a friendship over these last few weeks,” Amy wrote on Twitter.

And he signs back to her and patiently explains what he is saying, which is “Good morning, have a good day.”

And since sharing, Amy’s video has received more than 10 million views and so many happy responses.

Tim later spoke to the BBC: “Tallulah realized I was deaf and then one day she surprised me when she signed to me, ‘Have a good day’, I think she must have learned sign language at school.”

“I was very happy and I then showed Tallulah how to sign, ‘Good morning, have a good day’, and then she signed it perfectly and it absolutely made my day.”

And its clear that the delivery driver has made a wonderful reputation for himself amongst his customers, with many describing him as “lovely” and “a pleasure to be around.”

And many have been calling for Hermes to give Tim a pay-rise for his hard work.

Friendships cost nothing to make and it doesn’t at all matter what race, gender, age a person is.
