Why am I learning BSL?


Recommended Posts

I am learning BSL as it is something I have ALWAYS wanted to learn but during my training and then becoming a full time teacher I never found the time to do it. I have taken this opportunity whilst being at home(due to current situations), and using my time very wisely (alongside sending home learning home) to learn BSL. Later on in my career I do hope to become a Speech Therapist (many, many years from now) so I feel that this is a good first step into that career path. I am thoroughly enjoying learning this course and I cant wait to see all the new things I will know by the end! :D

Hi, my name is Bari. I work in Retail-admin sector. I am a marathoner, a proud father of two beautiful autistic children. I also run a small online sports clothing line called www.firefitness.clothing. My son is a non-verbal autistic and I am learning BSL sign language, so that I can communicate with him more in the near future even though he has good hearing and listen everything we ask him to do. 

I have completed Assessment 3 with the BSL and really enjoying it, and looking forward to complete the course quickly and get the certificate and planning to do more in this field.

Regards,

Bari

    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people!
