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!!

    • I have always wanted to learn BSL and love learning new languages generally. I learnt to fingerspell at a young age and have always wanted to learn more. I now work across a number of primary school working with children with SEN including HI and those who are pre-verbal and sign as their main form of communication, so I would like to be able to interact with them more.
    • Hi I'm Laura. I learnt to fingerspell when I was younger as my dad was completing a sign language course. Always wanted to take this further and now have finally got time to do it!
    • Hi everyone! I'm learning BSL for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I've always been fascinated with Sign Language - it's such a complex, beautiful and expressive language and has a brilliant community to go along with it. I've been trying to learn on and off for a few years but wasn't ever able to put aside enough time to commit to it! But now I've joined a group in my congregation who teach it, and it's been so much fun to learn together! Even through this pandemic we've been able to continue
    • Hi everyone! I'm Catherine and have just finished studying at Glasgow University. Sign language is something I always wanted to learn and now I have plenty of time to do it so I decided to sign up to an online course and am loving it! I feel sign language is such a great skill to learn because it can help you to be a more inclusive person and I think it is important to be aware of the means of communication in the deaf community. There is a man at my church who communicates using BSL and I alway
    • Hi, my names Chloe, I've just finished University and I've wanted to learn sign language for years but never had enough time to devote to it. Can't wait to start learning.
    • Hi, in my role as a Traffic Officer for Highways England. I helped a family that was deaf, because of their lip reading skills we where able to communicate.  Ever since then I have wanted to learn BSL. Hopefully at basic level but aiming for higher if possible.   
    • BSL is something I've always wanted to learn and I think it's important to try to be as inclusive as possible in all environments, so I started this course a couple of weeks ago as something to fill my summer when I don't have much else to do. Hopefully I'll be able to use it with people I meet at work and socially.
