Hello everyone, my name is Natalie and I am hoping to become a student midwife next year and have always wanted to learn BSL and thought this would be a great time to learn to help me be able to support all the women and birthing people I have the privilege of caring for.
Hello! My name is Shannon and I'm 22. I am starting a job as a support worker and believe that BSL would be a very useful skill. I have completed the introductory course and am looking to practice signs and become more fluent. If you have a study group/chat and wouldn't mind an extra member or would like a BSL study buddy, please let me know. Thanks
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 Alan. I live in Northern Ireland, I am over 60 and have decided to learn sign language.
I am very hard of hearing but can hear quite well with the aid of hearing devices.
I'm looking forward to enjoying your conversations.
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.
