  1. Hello How are you? I am good! My name is Lee-Ann I am 29 years old I live in England, London I work as a Teaching Assistant Thank you Bye
  2. Hi, My name is Lee-Ann. I have decided to learn BSL because I am a teaching assistant and being in education, I feel this may be beneficial going forward. Should the need arise, it is handy to have the skills to communicate where necessary with BSL. I am enjoying the journey so far and look forward to taking it a lot further. Thank you so much!
  3. Hey Everyone, I'm excited to be writing my wee story for you all! I have started learning BSL after being introduced to the deaf community through my new job. I work for a company who provides VRS and VRI services. So far learning BSL has given me a broader insight into all aspects of BSL and has really benefitted me, in particular learning to acknowledge my deaf colleagues and how they like to communicate with those in the hearing community. I hope that after I complete the BSL course I will be able to use BSL well and have more connecting communications with my colleagues and
  4. Hi! My name is Codie, I am 18 years old and I have started learning BSL. I am hoping to start university in September, where I will be moving from the countryside to the city to study a course which allows me to work with young children. In my work experience, I have come across children with a range of additional needs, including one boy who had never learned to speak, but was always listening and learning. Nobody in the school knew how to correctly communicate with him, meaning he was often subconsciously excluded by the other young children who found it difficult to be around him. Alon
  5. Hi, my name is Julia. I'm a 43 year old 1:1 teaching assistant. I'm also a mum to 2 wonderful kids, 1 of which is diagnosed ASC and at a special school. About 3½ yrs ago I attended a signalong course to help my sons communication. I really enjoyed the course. I signed up for this during lockdown and thought it would be another great extension to my SEN story.
  6. I'm learning BSL for a few reasons honestly, most of which are for other people who I am likely to connect with due to my studies, but also, for myself. As a Primary Teaching Student I want to learn to sign in order to better communicate with the children, parents, carers, workers and so many others who I will inevitably connect with in the world of education. I hope that by learning i'll be a better teacher, and a better support network too. I'm also learning simply for the principle; I love languages and I was never offered BSL in school (big shocker), but I don't really understa
  7. I have always had a lot of problems with my hearing and know that one day it may not be here so I would love to learn how to sign properly while I am still young enough to take it in and get good practice at it! My 5 year old daughter is also having some hearing issues and I would like to be able to know how to sign and then be able to teach her if it comes to that point. I feel it is a fantastic language and it should be taught much more widely. I feel it is a language that is more important than the likes of French, Spanish and German and should be taught at school the same as these other la
  8. I have no special story or reason for beginning to learn British sign language, It is just something that has always held my interest and has been an item on my bucket list for a while now. I am really enjoying learning this language, as other languages have been a huge struggle for me in the past😂 I can't wait to keep learning and eventually use this in day to day life.
  9. Hi there! My name is Paige, I am a nineteen year old student and I am currently learning BSL online during this corona virus lock down period. I would love to get the chance to practice and develop my skills alongside you through video calls where we can practice what we know and even discuss issues or new ways of learning BSL. I can be a little shy at first, so please excuse me if I am a little quiet. I am excited to begin this journey with you!
  10. I've always wanted to learn sign language and have plenty of time to do it now. I am a teacher in a mainstream school but aim to move towards SEN schools/units and think sign language would be really beneficial.
  11. Hi everyone, My name is Shelly and I am learning to sign and just wanted to drop in and say hi and hope everyone is doing ok. I have wanted to learn sign for a long time and thought what better opportunity than a lockdown lol. I am a married mom of 1 and have been learning by practising with my family. Thanks for reading!
  12. Hi. I am thinking about setting up a 8-10 week BSL programme to enable hearing people to use basic signs with Deaf signing users. What would you consider essential BSL signs. Think about. Nursery. Schools and super markets. Thank you x
