Learning BSL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, my name is Andrea and I am primary school teacher. I am loving being able to learn BSL and have wanted to refresh my skills for a while but have never found the time until now. I learned the basics years ago when I was working in a special school but have forgotten most of it sadly. I really feel that all children should be learning this in primary school and would love to be able to share some of this with my class.

Hi Andrea. Yours is the first message I have read on here - it really struck me! At school (year 6) my teacher taught us all the finger spelling alphabet. I NEVER forgot it (33 years ago!) . I have always wanted to learn BSL but never had the time - using the little bit extra I have at the moment to get started properly. Even if you just teach them the alphabet, it might spark something in the class to keep going!

Hi Susan - I have exactly the same experience.
One of my primary school teachers taught me the alphabet and I never forgot it. 😉

Good Luck to you both.
