Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, my name is Amy and I am 34 years old from London. I have been working in a primary school as a Teaching Assistant for a little while now and am really enjoying it. In the future I would like to work in a school for special needs children or a school which has a provision for special needs children. I've have completed a few online courses and I have chosen to take this course to able able to communicate with children who are deaf or have hearing impairments. I think British Sign Language should be taught and used in schools, therefore I am going to teach my self so I can implement this is my schools settings. I am really enjoying the course so far, its really fun and not as hard as I thought it would be. Looking forward to expanding my knowledge to be able to communicate with everyone regardless of differences. I am also looking forward to using my sign language in the classroom alongside my Teachers input sessions to help our young children learn BSL.

    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people!
