Hi All,

My name is Bob, I am a site manager for a school in the Gloucester area.

I've always wanted to learn BSL and now with the situation we all find ourselves in due to isolation, I have taken this time to do exactly that. I must admit, it is a bit daunting to start with, but I think I'm doing OK.

I do believe that everyone should learn this at some point in their lives, not only to learn a new language but also to be more inclusive of all, not only of race,colour,disability gender etc.

I have to admit I am enjoying this so much, I just want to learn more. 

This opens a whole new world. Like a lot of people who have just started on this journey, one question springs to mind..." Why didn't I do this earlier in my life?" Having said that I am here now and enjoying it to the max.

Take care all keep safe 

 

Regards Bob

    • Hello everyone,  Many years ago I spent time working with a deaf person, when he moved on to better things I promised him that I would learn sign language.  Here I am finally fulfilling my promise. 
    • Hello Everyone, my name is David and I have recently started the BSL course online. I have progressive hearing loss and at present wear hearing aids in both my ears, my early life was in the Royal Artillery and I also play the saxophone (no surprises why I'm losing my hearing!). As I have been informed that I will continue to lose my ability to hear I thought I best start learning BSL now. My daughter is learning with me, so hopefully we'll be able to help each other along and practice what we l
    • Hi I am Vicky.  I decided to do the introduction to sign language course mainly as learning a new skill that may be useful in the future. However I also work in education as a teacher so it may be useful if I ever work with students with hearing impairments.
    • I have started this course to help learn the basic signs and conversation gestures, expressions and cues to help me with a future venture in teaching BSL. I currently teach in a primary school and have a sign teacher that comes in each week to teach my class. It has always been something I have been passionate/interested in and I have decided to just go for it to help me daily with my 2 little boys and also to use in my classroom. 
    • Hello everybody,  I am Aimee, 32, from Lancashire. I am currently on Maternity leave with my 11 week old little boy and have started this course as it is something I have always been interested in and am looking for a new adventure alongside my normal teaching job of teaching BSL. I am very excited to start this journey :)
