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.

    • Hello everyone.  I am Kate.  I have just started to learn BSL with the online course. I have had varying levels of hearing impairment for many years. I have always wanted to learn sign but have not had the time before.  I am now retired and with the current restrictions, it is the perfect time to learn.  Found the alphabet and colours etc fairly easy but now its getting tough (what, where, when why etc.).

    • I am Bethan and I have only recently started learning BSL. I actually learnt the BSL alphabet from a poster in the toilet of a cocktail bar and have been inspired to learn ever since! I am a Civil Servant (Energy and Climate policy) and trained facilitator and I am excited to be able to draw this new skill into my work environment. Probably a little early but I am definitely keen in a few weeks to practice my signing with someone else.  Let me know if you are keen.  If anyone knows the sign
    • Hello. My name is Wiktoria, I come from Poland. Polish my native language. I currently go to university and study Sport and Exercise Science.   I always wanted to learn sign but didn’t know where to start. I have been learning for about 3 weeks now, and I am really enjoying it 😁 I actually found out about online British sign language courses through a girl (I cannot remember her name) on TikTok mentioning them.    I have found that I am struggling signing without saying the word

    • Hi Ijacoby. This is Delia.  good question. a lot of people get confused with this. BSL is different from SSE (signed suported English.) BSL has its own grammer and not everyword is said for example saying whats your name? in BSL  is,  name you what?is signed name what?  Its difficult to explain as BSL is such a visual language.  Its a good question to ask your tutor. Good luck and enjoy your course.
