Why i am doing this course


Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody, 

I am Bethany. 

My life has been a roller-coaster the past 4 months, but the end result is that It made me realise I wasn't going to be fulfilled working an office job. so I have decided to change career paths. I think I would be better suited working in a school with children with special needs as I enjoy helping people, so I have been applying to all my local jobs available. But unfortunately due to the current world situation. schools are shut and nowhere is hiring.

So in the mean time I have been following a letter I wrote to my 20 year old self (i'm 21 so i'm a year off...oops), in it there was a "bucket list" of things I wanted to do before I was 20. one of which was learning sign language, I had touched on it very briefly when I was 16-17 but it never progressed due to exams at the time. Hence, i'm using the lockdown to learning sign language to finally do something I have always wanted to do and to possible enhance my chances of getting a happier job once this situation has blown over :)

Feel free to pop up if you want too.

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • 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.
