I'm looking for members who work in a school - I'm keen to speak to people who have worked in education and who have had to work with Deaf/deaf students. I began my second teaching assistant role in April, during lockdown, and am learning BSL online for a deaf student I have been paired with, to support her in her home learning. I feel I am picking up signs fairly fast, and I think this is down to the fact that I have a real interest in learning BSL as a skill, and have done for years, but was too afraid to take the plunge and dip my toes in to a course. Now that I have a reason to do it - I love learning BSL and find it such a fascinating language. I would love to talk to some teachers or teaching assistants about any experience they have had with deaf students before or currently 🙂 please do get in touch! 💖

Hi Jasmine, I am an NQT and although I haven't yet taught any Deaf/deaf children, I currently have a child with a severe hearing impairment and has a cochlear implant. I want to learn some BSL to further support him and any future students I have. 🙂

Ahh hello @Lacey Grace !!!!! 🙂 that is fantastic! I'm still unsure how to use this thing, I haven't used a forum in a while, but I would love to practice with you some time? What course are you doing, and what level are you at so far?

    • I believe the sentence structure would be "like you rugby" with a questioning expression.   "Like" is tap twice on the chest with flat primary hand, "you" is point to the person, then "rugby" is mime throwing a rugby ball. All this is covered in lesson 3 or 4 I think. The hobbies/likes/dislikes lesson.   HTH
    • I would love to be helpful and I work in a shop where I have had interactions with quite a few deaf customers who obviously use sign language with their family but i'd love to be able to sign to them so that their shopping experience was more inclusive. 
    • Hello!  My name is Emma, I have always wanted to learn BSL since I read a book 'A Quiet Kind of Thunder' when I was younger that featured deaf and BSL speakers. I had set it as my new year resolution many years on the trot without commitment or means to complete the resolution. I'm 19, I do English Lit and Lang at Uni and because I do a joint degree I can't take the elective in BSL that is offered at my uni. Then lockdown began and I have started an online course and I'm very much enjoying

    • Hello, my names Megan I am hoping to study Adult Nursing in September and I decided to start learning BSL during lock down as it will likely come in handy and help me interact more inclusively with everyone I meet and benefit me when helping people in the future.
