Why I'm Learning BSL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My name is Grace, I live in Manchester, and I decided to learn BSL because it has been a goal of mine for a few years. As a GCSE student, we learn foreign languages but we don't learn the language we will possibly come across more often then French or Spanish. I've wanted to have a way to connect and have conversations with those who are deaf in some sort of way since I was in Year 8, especially to make new friends and include those who are isolated because of their condition! In this predicament, we all should try something new and try and help others, or become more knowledgeable about a subject like BSL. Quarantine has given me the chance to stop and learn this new and amazing language and I'm so glad I decided to take matters into my own hands and learn! Hopefully, in the future, I will be become a SEN teaching assistant or, if I'm feeling a bit more ambitious in college, a psychologist where I can use BSL in my field of work! For now though, I'm gonna keep my head down, get through my GCSEs and keep learning BSL for then!

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

    • Hello everyone! My name is Jason and I am trying to learn BSL using the online course over on british-sign; I'm about half way through it at the moment. I became more interested in learning to sign because I feel as though everyone should be able to communicate and it seems unfair that BSL isn't - or at least wasn't when I was at school - part of the standard curriculum. I was also inspired to start learning because of seeing more deaf representation being portrayed in the media (such as Co
