I have always had a lot of problems with my hearing and know that one day it may not be here so I would love to learn how to sign properly while I am still young enough to take it in and get good practice at it! My 5 year old daughter is also having some hearing issues and I would like to be able to know how to sign and then be able to teach her if it comes to that point. I feel it is a fantastic language and it should be taught much more widely. I feel it is a language that is more important than the likes of French, Spanish and German and should be taught at school the same as these other languages are.

These are my reasons for wanting to learn BSL 😊

Thanks for reading,

Jemma

Hi I’m Debbie,

I have always been interested in learning sign language but never thought I had the time. The lockdown has enabled me to try different things this being one to keep my brain active. I would like to think that I could go on to use this in a professional capacity at a later stage. My daughter is also learning for work so we can practice together over Skype which is great.

    • Hi all, I decided to sign up for this course since I have some previous experience of learning BSL (at Uni) and wanted to refresh my memory.  In the past few weeks I have met two Deaf people in my area (which is quite rare) and when I met them I wanted to be able to say more than I already know/could remember from previous study. I really enjoy learning BSL and find I remember new signs quite easily. The covid lockdown has provided the perfect time for some accelerated study!
    • Hi all, I have started the BSL intro course and just introducing myself- my name is Emma and I live in Sydney.  I went to uni in Durham and was lucky enough to learn some BSL there which I really enjoyed.  I have started this course now to remind myself of some basic signs so that if and when I meet others who sign I can communicate (at least at a basic level!)

    • I have not long completed lesson three but there was a bit that said we had covered it but I couldn't find it anywhere.    How do you sign "are you deaf or hearing?"    Help would be much appreciated as I feel this is a pretty important phrase!! 😂 Thanks in advance!
