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 does anyone have the name of a BSL finger spelling font that I could download please?  Many thanks.
    • Hi my name is June.  I am a mum to a 27 year-old profoundly deaf son and I also work with HI children in a school unit as a Speech & Language Therapy Assistant.  I've been heavily involved in the deaf community since my son was diagnosed.
    • So, I moved to Japan last year to work as an English Teacher. One of the schools I visit is a special education school and uses Japanese Sign Language regularly in the classroom. As i began to learn JSL alongside spoken Japanese I decided it was time to properly start to learn some BSL too. Picking up BSL is generally easier for me too, as I already know English!
    • I'm Angel (25) from Kent. Currently living in the Japanese countryside hoping to learn BSL along with JSL (Japanese Sign Language). The dream is master both and be a translator/interpreter. Wish me luck!
    • My name is Marie (38 years old) and I come from Cardiff.  I have two children.  I've always wanted to master brand language and now it's finally coming true.  I work as a waitress in a cafe and it has happened to me several times that a customer communicated in sign language and I did not understand him.  I am very happy that I can learn this language.
    • hi, I am learning BSL as I love languages and also I occasionally work with deaf people and would like to be able to communicate with them.

    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
