New to BSL

Recommended Posts

Hi to anyone who reads this

I decided to learn sign language for a few reasons, firstly to learn a new skill during this very strange time we are going through at the moment (Covid 19 pandemic), to be able to communicate with any deaf people that might come into my work when we re-open and finally in case any of my loved ones experience deafness. BSL so far has been an absolute amazing learning process and I cant wait to continue

Hi My name is Frances. I am interested in learning British sign language as I would like to do voluntary work in the community.

I am a retired support worker and enjoying learning a new skill. I hope that I will be to communicate with anyone who uses BSL.

    • Hi All, I have a deer best friend so started learning sign but I now work with children in gymnastics that require sign so am furthering my knowledge 
    • Hi all! I'm Cherise and I've started learning BSL so that I can interact with more people. I have cousins that are deaf and hard of hearing and I'd love to be able to talk to them in their language rather than relying on lipreading as I have been (very lazy of me!) I've always wanted to learn and find that I now have the time to start.  Happy learning to you all and I hope to connect with some of you 😊
    • I have just started the online BSL course, I’m a complete beginner but I am enjoying it and hoping I can put it to use in the future. :)

    • I have just finished with lesson 3 and thought I would try to introduce myself a little. I have looked through a few videos to get an idea of what I could say...so thanks esp Hannah White! I only got interested in BSL since my 5year old was learning three signs a week with homeschooling and I seemed to enjoy learning with him. Thought I would give it a real shot. Please let me know what you think.
