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

    • Hello, everyone! I started doing the level 1 course from British-sign, so far I'm having a lot of fun doing it! However, reinforced learning takes one topic already interesting & makes it a lot better, learning on your own is comfortable, sometimes slow, and can burn you out quickly, but working together helps a ton! I hope we can work together to achieve what we all want to do! ^^ My name is Ekito and I can hear, I am 18 and plan to learn more BSL after I finish this Level 1 course, the course at my own college is very expensive and they won't help me pay for it unfortunately, but I have alternatives to achieve what I want in life :)   Sorry I didn't record myself signing, I feel that I need to improve my fingerspelling & signing before showing myself haha, I also looked like I just woke up XD
