BSL the way forward for everyone

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

    • Hi, I’m Artio. I learned finger spelling when I was very little. I love languages - I enjoy learning foreign languages, computer coding, and I’ve been wanting to learn BSL for a long time but struggled to find and pay for resources. I work full time as a data analyst. I study part time towards a Natural Sciences degree with an emphasis on Biology and Chemistry. I’m autistic and have ADHD.  I’d love to be able to talk without using sound. Speaking out loud feels like a lot m
