Jasmine Bea posted a topic in Introduce YourselfI'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! 💖
EllieK posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHi! My name is Ellie, I am 21 and from the Isle of Wight. I have been wanting to learn BSL for a while as I think that it is a great life skill to have. I love to travel and have been lucky enough to take two gap years to explore many countries around the world. I am now in the second year of my four year degree to become a registered dietitian and am loving every minute. I am looking forward to learning more BSL and being fluent enough to be able to use it in my future career, any tips and tricks for good practice and remembering would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! My name is Jonty, I'm 21 and a 2nd year medical student at Edinburgh uni. Like a lot of people on here I am now working from home due to COVID-19, but am keen to keep learning sign language as I was taking classes at uni. I hope that one day I can use what I have learnt to help patients without needing to find an interpreter. I am about halfway through my online intro course but have done lessons before. If anyone wants to practice with just let me know. I'm pretty easy going and have a lot of spare time atm, would be fun!
