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.

    • I'm Jo I learnt some basic sign in primary school and I am now learning to expand my skills, so I can hopefully communicate better with the deaf community. 
    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • 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.
