Hello (*waves*)

Recommended Posts


My name is Ben, I am a playworker and work with children across Gloucestershire. I am currently a furloughed worker and I am keen to boost my skills while stuck at home looking after my own kids. Signing up to this course (especially with the reduced cost) was a no brainer, my hope is that I can engage with children who use BSL and encourage them to our community play sessions, as well as building relationships through language with school pupils I work with.

I am trying to find that balance between learning something new to add strings to my professional bow (so to speak) as well as keeping my brain engage in something that isn't Bing Bunny or unicorns!

I'm liking the course so far, once I have a bit more confidence in stringing sentences together (by going over and over the work sheets) then I plan to FaceTime friends of mine who use BSL, it will be great to chat with them using this new ability.

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
