I am learning BSL because way back when I was in primary school we had a couple of deaf kids in a lower year group. Although I went to the signing classes at break time it was my final year at primary so I never learnt much. My nephew has downs and uses makaton, which although not the same it still has some basis in BSL. I think all children should be taught BSL from a young age.
Hi I'm Lisa, I have started to learn BSL during lockdown because way back when I was in primary school we had a couple of deaf children at the school and one of the teachers taught a signing class during break. Unfortunately this was the year before I moved to secondary school so I learnt very little. My nephew has downs and uses makaton, I think that BSL should be taught from a young age, as they say not everyone is going to go to a foreign country but anyone could end up deaf.
