Hi everyone. I did a BSL level 1 course about 20 years ago when I was at sixth form college, alongside my other subjects. It was just something that I felt I wanted to do. Of course I didn't use it at all for a long time though so had forgotten most of it. This year I started a job as a teaching assistant at my local primary school with deaf children who have cochlear implants. Most of them are verbal but one uses BSL to communicate. Before I started the job I started this online BSL course to refresh my knowledge but now that I'm at home most of the time due to the lockdown, I want to get to grips with it properly. I've got 3 children so it's pretty busy at home but if it's possible to practise with others then that'd be great. Gemma

I don't mind at all Ellen. Thanks for replying. I wasn't sure about writing anything at all on the forum - it's a bit scary putting yourself out there isn't it? I watched a video yesterday that someone on here had made of themselves signing along to '7 years' by Lukas Graham. She said she'd only been signing for 2 weeks yet she'd put a video of herself signing on YouTube! I definitely don't have that kind of confidence! How are you finding the online course?
