Hi everyone, a quick hello! I'm Beth, I'm 28 and I'm a primary teaching assistant in a mainstream school, currently WFH. I've wanted to learn BSL ever since I interned at The Chickenshed in Southgate, London a few years ago. I hope to use it with any non-verbal children at my school, as well as teaching it to my classes. I feel it's important to be able to communicate in lots of ways.

    • I've been doing the course for a few weeks now and really enjoying it!! I've always had an interest in sign language and wanted to learn for so long, but now I'm currently writing my dissertation on deaf theatre and of course a lot of that constitutes looking into sign - so I thought it would be a rewarding, and useful experience for me as an actor to learn sign and understand it more.
    • I am a Specialist teaching Assistant for CYP with Visual Impairment and crossing over to Hearing Impairment. Previously I worked in a SEN school and used Makaton sign, as I have been in my new role I thought it would be good for me to learn BSL and my team suggested the online course, which I am enjoying.
    • I'm a student teacher and recently took part in a BSL workshop hosted by some of my peers who had experience with signing. I really enjoyed the workshop and was keen to learn more so I decided to take the BSL Course. I'm really enjoying it so far and I'm surprised as to how quickly I am learning. I can see the benefits of using BSL in my future classroom to make learning more inclusive and interactive as well as for my own personal interest.
    • Hello. My name is Lisa and I’ve always wanted to learn sign language. 
    • I've decided to start learning sign language as I feel it's a great skill to have in life. So far I'm loving it!
    • A close family member of mine lost his hearing towards the end of his life, and he found it incredibly difficult and isolating. He struggled to learn BSL, but he (and I!) were always so grateful when people made sure things like films, speeches etc. were made more accessible for him. Working in customer service reminded me of how important accessibility is, and I am really excited to learn to sign!
    • I'm just starting out learning sign language, I learned how to finger spell at school but never got beyond that! I'm really keen to learn more and improve over lockdown.
    • Hey yall! Im new to learning BSL properly as i have only being doing them online on youtube. I am ready to learn my heart out and i love the community here. I dont have any ear troubles of my own but i thought it would be nice to learn BSL for anyone who is. I am not new however to medical stuff as i have 2 conditions, Loyiz detez syndrome or LDS and Scoliosis as some will know more about. I know how tuff it is to find someone who understands what im going through and i want to be the person that understands what deaf people are going through. I have already done Level 1 and im ready to take it to the next level. Thanks for listening to my story. Bye xxx
