Why I'm learning BSL


Recommended Posts

Heya!

I've always wanted to learn and learnt the alphabet at quite a young age but was never able to go much further than that. 

At 17/18 I started working with children with additional needs, I attempted to develop some more knowledge but could not afford the costs of the courses. 

At 20, I started training to become a radiographer. This required me to have a placement in a hospital and meant that I came across people who were hard of hearing quite a lot. I started teaching myself the basics on YouTube but didn't get very far. 

Now, at 22 I have an interview today for a job in a hospital for males who have neurological conditions, brain injuries and deaf mental health. This gave me a kick up the butt to find a course online, see if I can find any cheap ones. Especially with what is going on in the world now, is there ever a better time to learn a new language? Might as well use my time wisely. So I have started learning on British Sign and luckily have been able to do it for £3 (Poor student). I have never been so excited to count to 100 in a language!

Honestly I am so grateful to have this opportunity to learn British sign langauge, and hope to continue learning!

    • Hello everyone! My name is Jason and I am trying to learn BSL using the online course over on british-sign; I'm about half way through it at the moment. I became more interested in learning to sign because I feel as though everyone should be able to communicate and it seems unfair that BSL isn't - or at least wasn't when I was at school - part of the standard curriculum. I was also inspired to start learning because of seeing more deaf representation being portrayed in the media (such as Co
