Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

Hi. My name is Pete . I’m a civil servant who is staying at home during this lockdown. Told to do courses to keep my learning up to date, but the CS courses I’ve been pointed at are boring and irrelevant. However, as an underpaid Civil Servant I have a second job at a cinema. There we have lots of deaf and hard of hearing customers and I’ve always wanted to help them more, so I thought why not learn BSL. This course is fantastic and I have plenty of time to learn it. Only trouble is practicing it on others as stuck in my home now!!

    • Hello Everyone!  I have always wanted to learn to sign as I am hard of hearing and have spent many years missing conversations and learning to read lips.  I now work in a shop and we have several BSL users coming in and I so want to be able to sign with them!    Looking forward to learning to sign with people :-)

    • Hi,  my name is Gosia. I work as a teaching assistant in a primary school. I'd like to learn BSL because we use it at school and it'd love to be able to communicate with all the children. 
    • As I work at a company that create material for children, I wish by learning more about BSL I would be able to understand better how to support children with special needs or create resources that support them, especially when I used to work at a childcare centre where most TA would struggle with children with autism; through sign language, it allows them to communicate better and I can be part of the change that make it easier for anyone that would appreciate the assistance.

    • Hi I've started the British-sign online course. My daughter has a hearing loss but opts to be unaided.   She manages so far in life to communicate & learn well and relies on close distance hearing and of lip patterns. Now that social distancing  & masks are being worn she has 2 new additional barriers to learning & communication.  So I want to learn BSL to help her. I'm not confident or fluent yet but I've passed on a few signs I've learnt so far. Our aim is to reach a good level of
