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

    • I strongly believe that sign language is a very important skill to have - being able to sign allows widening of my communication and also means I do not have to rely on others. I have worked in IT for 15+ years and would like to find better and more effective ways of connecting both sign language and IT.
    • Hi. Im currently learning the beginners course to BSL. Ive been self teaching myself through YouTube but thought id try a more structured course.
    • Good evening,   I achieved my beginners certification last week Friday. A few weeks ago I decided that signing is/should be an essential skill that I need and as a result I signed up to the course on the website and just went for it. I have worked in IT for the best part of 15 years (user support and projects) and part of my motivation for learning sign language is to find a way or ways to connect sign language with IT. Some personal info - i’m 40 years old, with an amazing 6

    • Hi, my name is Caroline and I have just started to learn BSL.
    • Hi my name is Sandra, I am a grandmother of 13, we are a very close family but sometimes it does get a bit annoying when I am trying to complete an assessment. They send me photos and messages constantly, if I don’t reply they think there is something wrong, this means I am stopping and starting! I type slowly anyway (my ipad is old, keys stick, school issue) so my times for completing assessments are not quick. I hope I don”t get penalised at the end of the course! I am hoping I will gain enoug
