Introduction

Recommended Posts

Hello, i'm Chantelle. 

I have always been interested in sign language and makaton before starting my degree 3 years ago. I am now a newly qualified speech and language therapist working with children. I am really looking forward to using my BSL skills to help the development of children when and where possible.

Hello Leighton,

Yes, I have already completed Makaton training. I have found BSL useful and enjoyable to learn. I agree, it is definitely useful for people to know the difference along with when and where is appropriate to use these skills.

Introduction. Hi everyone. My name is Louise and I am a primary school teacher. New legislation is due out that primary teachers in Wales will now have to teach a third language in addition to English and Welsh. Our school has chosen BSL so I am learning in order to teach the children in my class. I am finding it a lot to remember but I am enjoying it.
