New to BSL


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have just completed the online level one course of BSL. Before this I knew a few signs but not many. I am hoping to try find people to practice with, as it still confuses me how to put sentences together properly, but I am guessing that comes with practice. Please say hi, if this is new to you too and you would like someone to practice with. 

I am a support worker currently, I thought it would be good to learn in this line of work, but also because It is a language I have always wanted to learn.

Hi!

I am in a similar position to you. I have been a support worker in the past and currently working on becoming an SEND teacher (graduating in July fingers crossed with all this craziness going on). I also have picked up basic signs from my work beforehand, but enjoying learning it in a slightly more formal way.

Hi, 

Oh that is great, fingers crossed for you too, I am hopefully graduating my health science access course in June/ July also, and then hopefully on to study Physiotherapy in September. 

Yeah I have really enjoyed the course, I just need to keep practicing now, I am trying to go round signing as I talk around the house to my partner ha ha.

    • 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.
