Hi, My name is Holly, I'm 22 from Essex. I decided to start learning BSL- its always something I've been eager to learn and believe it should start being taught in schools. I finally decided to learn BSL when I because Cabin crew with EasyJet last year. I was able to communicate with a blind lady during her brief but I felt like as much as a blind passenger can see what's happening onboard none of us can communicate properly with them which I found a shame. I originally only set out to learn basic signs for onboard however I just never got round to learning it. Thankfully or unthankfully during this isolation I found It the perfect time to learn not just basic onboard signs but actual signs which will help even more. Unlike other spoken European languages its not a common we always carry deaf/blind passenger so its not for extra money- if it was I'd learn Spanish😆 but I believe its a really useful tool to know and I just need to try keep on top of it once if completed so I don't forget parts.

    • 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! 
    • I'm learning BSL because I'm deeply involved in campaigning on social issues and want to help with accessibility in those movements.
    • Hello everyone! I've been interested in sign language since I was taught and introductory course when I was a lot younger and now have the time to continue that education and learn it properly.
