Hi I am a newby. I started learning BSL with a friend during the first lockdown. I kind of let it slide when I went back to work, however I want to try and keep it up, and not be a quitter! The reason I started, is partially, that I've always wanted to learn sign language, and partially because I am a librarian working with the public and believe it is a good skill to have in that workplace. Afterall public libraries are meant to be for ALL people..
Hi My name is Clare and I'm learning BSL for two main reasons. 1) I have been interested in learning g sign language general for some time, but never got a round to it. 2) I work in a public library, and while we dont get that many deaf borrowers, we get some and also you can never assume anything Bout a person. I would love to be able to provide a more inclusive service, rather than just reaching for paper and pen. Like others I've used lockdown as the perfect time to get started.
