BSL the way forward for everyone


Recommended Posts

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 everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
