So... This is why am i learning BSL... 

 

I'm learning British Sign Langauge, because i want to make a different in a child's life and be able to help a child or young person. I want a child or young person to feel exactly the same as other children and/ or young people and i want them to know only because they have to use sign as their language they are not different and they are exactly the same as other members of the public. i want them to feel like they are not being ignored or they are not different in any way. i want them to be able to interact and be able to join in with different activities, and being able to undertake this course and being able to actually help someone else gives me such a good feel. I want to learn British Sign Language in order to gain the experience and knowlegde of it and also be able to interact with anyone that may have it. Even if i end up changing my career and becoming something else and not working in a childcare setting, i might work somewere were a customer or another staff member is using British Sign Language and i will be able to have a conversation with them and also help them if they ever need it. 

I believe Brtitish Sign language is something everyone should try and undertake and have a go out because you never know you could be working with someone or dealing with someone that uses it on a daily basis. I absolutely love the fact that i have started this course and i'm already practicing my signs with family member and friends over facetime. iI've never felt so prouder of myself for undertaking something like this. Its such a good thing to have and it will also look good on a cv. I'm thinking of taking a makaton course swell, so if someone knows anywhere around North Wales that has a course please let me know

    • 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.
