The best Christmas gift I could have got | Brief letters

GCSE in sign language | Early daffodils | Michelle Mone | Banksy’s road sign | Blind date bliss

Aged 80, this is the best Christmas present I could have got (British Sign Language to be offered as GCSE subject, 21 December) – to know that in the future, children will have the chance to learn and be included. I have taught my husband the fingerspelling alphabet, which helps enormously when I get excluded. It’s not signing, but the beginning of being included and being accepted – my wish in life. Well done, Daniel Jillings, for your campaign.
