  1. Ahh hello @Lacey Grace !!!!! 🙂 that is fantastic! I'm still unsure how to use this thing, I haven't used a forum in a while, but I would love to practice with you some time? What course are you doing, and what level are you at so far?
  2. I am so interested in signing as a language. I have been paired with a girl with a hearing impairment who is feeling awfully isolated as a young deaf girl, so I hope to build her confidence in learning BSL, and make her realise how incredible it is to have the privilege to learn this complex language.
  3. I'm looking for members who work in a school - I'm keen to speak to people who have worked in education and who have had to work with Deaf/deaf students. I began my second teaching assistant role in April, during lockdown, and am learning BSL online for a deaf student I have been paired with, to support her in her home learning. I feel I am picking up signs fairly fast, and I think this is down to the fact that I have a real interest in learning BSL as a skill, and have done for years, but was too afraid to take the plunge and dip my toes in to a course. Now that I have a reason to do it - I love learning BSL and find it such a fascinating language. I would love to talk to some teachers or teaching assistants about any experience they have had with deaf students before or currently 🙂 please do get in touch! 💖
  4. Hi everyone! It's been a while since I joined a forum, but it is my first time joining a BSL one. I am learning BSL as a teaching assistant helping a hearing impaired student that I was due to begin working with in April. Due to the current situation, the pandemic has resulted in necessary school closures, so I now support her in her home learning via online video calls. She is a growing teenager and feels very secluded in a world of people who can hear with the aid of technology, so it is my mission to make learning BSL with her an experience that she values. I want to show her that it is a very useful skill to have as a deaf child, and that it will remove limitations she currently faces in her adolescence. I want to make learning BSL fun for her, and prepare her for the classroom environment in which we can use it as our own secret language without disturbing the rest of the class. Right now, she feels isolated and different from every body else, but by finding a passion for BSL myself, I hope to transfer that energy to her. It would be lovely to speak to others from a similar situation, be it teaching a deaf child in a mainstream school, or trying to inspire a young person to learn how to sign. 😚
