Introducing myself`

Recommended Posts

Attempting in video: Hello, my name is Jade, I am 20 years Old. What is your name?

Sorry about the camera quality and my frequent pausing! I'm still quite new, but I am loving learning BSL.

I decided to start learning because I currently volunteer with people who have different learning and physical disabilities, and recently I have been informed that I will be working (somewhat) closely with a Deaf person. I thought that it would be nice if I could communicate with her a little. One of my closest friends also has autism and at times, can often be non-verbal. Previously we have used fingerspelling to communicate, however due to efficiency we have both decided to start learning BSL separately. I hope to teach in a specialised school/placement teaching adults with disabilities in a few years after my degree, and a lot of places are in need of people who can sign BSL.

So I guess I have quite a few reasons and before writing this I didn't realise I had so many!

    • 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!
