Medical student looking for someone to practice with! :)


Recommended Posts

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!

Hello Jonty, 

I am also keen on learning bsl but I have no clue when to start. I know no signs and would like to practice with someone so it might be easier to form conversation and correct imperfections. 

Also congrats on your medical studies 

Cheyenne~

    • I just completed the BSL introductory course online and thought I would introduce myself, as suggested.  I would like to do more online BSL courses and find a way to practise online with others.    
    • Hi Sarge. I see a lot of posts here have no replies so I'd like to buck that trend. I hope you enjoy coming to the UK. I'm autistic like most of my family. My little brother is autistic too and has learning difficulties and we used to sign with him. That's probably where we began. We started with Makaton and then desired to learn a proper language, then learnt SSE, and now I'm learning BSL proper. BSL is such a wonderfully expressive language that says more quicker than many English words could.
    • I've lots of reasons for learning and am interested to meet people who have similar interests to share vocabulary Im a GP and I want to make my practice more inclusive. I'll still need interpreters, of course, but I'd like to be able to make it more accessible for people to communicate their needs without booking on or relying on an app Im a Scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs. We already sign together and hope to provide more opportunity for young peo
    • Oh, and I'm autistic and play dungeons and dragons, which means I have loads more vocabulary to develop in the field of neurodiversity and fantasy games!
    • Hi all, New to the forum (obviously). I'm a GP in Wales. I learnt for several years a few decades ago before education moved properly away from SSE towards BSL so I am having one to one lessons as my vocabulary is better than my language structure, and then hope to slot back into a group. My motivations are manifold: I am a GP and want to make my practice more inclusive to Deaf people. I am a scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs (again, he is older like me so
    • I wrote in my previous post introducing myself my reasons for wanting to learn so I'll just repeat what I wrote there: I am learning to help my younger brother express himself better and speak to d/Deaf people in a way they may find more comfortable.
    • Hello, My name is Sarge. I am a recent high school graduate heading to the UK for university at the end of the year. I've started learning BSL to keep my mind active over the hols as well as hopefully help my autistic younger brother communicate better. I've seen online that sign language may help children like him express themselves and I think this is very important, and being able to converse with d/Deaf in a way they may feel more comfortable with is a huge plus.  Thank you, S
