Introducing Myself - Hi there!!


Recommended Posts

Hi there! 

My name is Bethany, and like many of you, I have decided to take the plunge and begin learning BSL during this period of lockdown! I will be graduating this summer with a degree in Psychology and want to use this to start a career in teaching. One of my final year modules focused on Autism Spectrum Disorder, and confirmed to me that I want to work with SENDS children. So, in order to do that, and do it effectively, knowledge of BSL will be so valuable! I took some basic classes in primary school, as one of my classmates was deaf, so I have been able to fingerspell for years, but not much more! So, why not, as we have such an abundance of free time at the minute, use it productively and sign up for a BSL course? So far, so good! I am thoroughly enjoying this process and am really looking forward to using sign language in my day to day life.

    • 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
    • Hi, my names Celia and i am currently enrolled on the BSL course. Im really enjoying it so far and hope to make some good progress in the rest of lockdown :)
    • Hi Sarah,   I don't know if this is of any use. I did a level two on course mix. It didn't have any videos so difficult to understand. However did cover early grammer structure and a few new words I hadn't learn't on this level one course. Last week however I found a level 3 which I believe was still with course mix but said it had videos and you didn't have to have any knowledge of BSL at all, but some would be useful. If you go for it please let me know what you think. I am working through a book at present then looking for a level 3 course. Happy signing Sue  
    • Hi all 👋  I've been umming and ahhing about throwing myself in and learning BSL, and I can now proudly say that I've not long started my journey! (very early days and currently only 2 weeks in!)                                As I'm so new to it all right now I'm not too sure whether having someone to practice with would be the best thing (I could probably only sign certain colours and numbers to you haha!), but I'd absolutely like to be able to practice with some of you when I can to help build and embed my knowledged as I would through my course.    I work for a Bank and work from home due to Covid so I don't tend to see anybody to be able to practice, so I'm super excited that I've found this group and can get to know some of you 🙂  Speak to you soon, Anna x
    • Hi there!   I am Jolandi and I recently started with BSL. I am an inspiring teacher and therefore, learning BSL might come in handy one day. 
    • Good Afternoon, I am very new to BSL , I thought it would be a great thing to learn. Also I have a lot of free time as I am a singer in lockdown. And thought it would be great for future career options. I am very scared about actually conversing with someone but would love to at some point. though it might be a very slow conversation. Helen
