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.

    • Hello, are you still looking for a school for your child? I advise christian school https://fceagles.org/ , provide a nurturing environment where academic excellence and spiritual growth go hand in hand. These institutions integrate a biblical worldview into their curriculum, offering students a well-rounded education that fosters intellectual, moral, and spiritual development. Students engage in rigorous academic studies while participating in daily Bible lessons, chapel services, and community
    • Thank you so much! that is amazing what you're doing!  wish you the best of luck in your journey!!
    • Hi  I’m currently working in a primary school in Wales. There has been suggestions that I might be working with a 6 year old with a cochlear implant from September. Im here to improve my BSL to help them achieve the best they can 
    • That's great!  I'm taking level 2 ISL(Irish) right now.  Got a book of Bible Stories in English and Braille I'm working through too. I wish you the best of luck!
    • Hey, i'm new here. I'm coming to the end of my level 1 course now ready to start level 2. I am aiming to go all the way to persue my drea career as an interpretor. I am hoping to find some people here that would like to practice, so that our signing can get to be the est it can be!
    • It's a bit late to reply, though I think Let's Sign BSL Dictionary is one of the more impressive sign dictionaries.  ASL has "The Gallaudet Children’s Dictionary of American Sign Language" and the ISL(Irish) dictionary includes the first page with the alphabet, the explains each further sign with the alphabet introduced on the first page.  A good dictionary can be a good book I think. I only just noticed no one had answered your question, so I thought I might.
    • Hi all, hoping that you are really well. I undertook a BSL course around 25 years ago. I now have a little boy who requires us to sign to help him with his day to day life. It's surprising how much is coming back to me and how much I enjoy it!. Hoping that today is a good day for you :)
