Why I am learning BSL


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Lauren and I am 16. I personally believe that it is always good to try something new and challenging everyday, and I thought that learning BSL would be an incredible skill to gain for the future once lockdown is over. I study A levels in Criminology, Art, and History at sixth form, and I have been unsure exactly on what career path to take for quite some time. I am particularly now interested in working specifically on a career that involves a Criminology degree, or possibly Psychology or Law if I am able to at university, so that I could either work in a role that involves the social control for crime or working as an active part of the government, i.e. the MI5. My sixth form has advised everyone to get involved in any online opportunities, due to work experience being cancelled for this year, so for me choosing to learn BSL has made me become more open-minded in learning the other ways for communicating with other people, which I think is vital in the society we have today. I feel that I have made the right choice to be a part of the online course as I feel that I am enjoying each lesson more and more as I progress further, and I am intrigued to see how much I have learnt once I have completed it. Thank you for giving me this opportunity for the future, it is greatly appreciated!

    • 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. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people!
