introducing myself

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Caoimhe. I'm 17 years old, so I'm in year 12 of secondary school. I currently live in Spain (from the UK) and I've always struggled with languages, but i recently found out I have dyslexia which is the reason I've always struggled with the reading and writing side of learning, which is why I've taken this opportunity to learn BSL, a visual language. I am throughly enjoying my coarse and seem to be picking it up quite quickly. It is really enjoyable for me to learn because it gives me the opportunity to learn something new without having to worry about reading or memorising words. I think it is a brilliant skill to have, opening many doors and presents new opportunities. I do believe that more people should be encouraged to learn BSL as there is no reason why we can't all take the opportunity to learn a valuable skill and be able to communicate with everyone, no matter the circumstances. Currently in not using BSL however next year when I move back to the UK for university I am hoping to get some practice whenever the time presents itself. So far Im really glad with my choice to take this opportunity and the course I'm on is brilliant xx

    • I think that is a wonderful reason for doing this course.  
    • I have just started the online course and had been meaning to do it for a while.  I wanted to learn as I am a teacher and it is such a useful skill to have to be able to communicate more widely.  I think I will be teaching my class to sign soon! Jean
    • Hi Rubes123 I think thats great.. good luck at uni.   
    • Hi, My name is Andy and I work as a CSI for the police. I am learning BSL as I tend to deal with incidents such as burglaries where the victims are elderly and vulnerable. On occasion they will be deaf so signing could help me to communicate with them and help them in what is usually a really upsetting time. Even the finger spelling so far and basic questions will be a massive leap. Really excited.
    • Hi everyone!  I've always wanted to learn BSL as it's such a useful skill to have. I am going to uni in September so if I were to meet a deaf person, I would now feel much more confident and excited to use the BSL I have been learning.  Hope everyone is staying safe :)
    • Haha i was the same. Put it up on Facebook and told family and you should as it is an amazing achievement  Yes it feels like going in new and blind almost for me too. No we dont have any training to do but heard layout going to completely change operating of the day and just so unknown. Not helped by fact i support a student in my job with epilepsy and her seizures are triggered by anxiety nervousness etc so me and her family who im very close to are worried. What is it you do again? 
    • Well, thank you for the vote of confidence, when I get my certificate I will be framing it and showing it off to everybody I know haha 😂 But seriously, congrats again on acing the final exam. Well deserved.   I'm not surprised you're nervous about heading back, I know for me it's definitely going to feel like I'm starting a new job when I eventually get the go ahead to go back in. Just curious, but do you have to take any additional health and safety course or additional training befor
