Communication is a big part of building relationships and uniting communities so I'm learning BSL because I think it is important for hearing people to take the initiative to learn how to communicate and understand the deaf community more! I also believe that by learning BSL it will enable me to become a better more inclusive doctor when I finish my degree! I learnt a bit of ASL when I was younger but I am so excite

But now I've joined a group in my congregation who teach it, and it's been so much fun to learn together! Even through this pandemic we've been able to continue
    • Hi everyone! I'm Catherine and have just finished studying at Glasgow University. Sign language is something I always wanted to learn and now I have plenty of time to do it so I decided to sign up to an online course and am loving it! I feel sign language is such a great skill to learn because it can help you to be a more inclusive person and I think it is important to be aware of the means of communication in the deaf community. There is a man at my church who communicates using BSL and I alway
    • Hi, my names Chloe, I've just finished University and I've wanted to learn sign language for years but never had enough time to devote to it. Can't wait to start learning.
    • Hi, in my role as a Traffic Officer for Highways England. I helped a family that was deaf, because of their lip reading skills we where able to communicate.  Ever since then I have wanted to learn BSL. Hopefully at basic level but aiming for higher if possible.
