I’m learning BSL because..

Recommended Posts

Hi my names Carrie and I’m a registered nurse. I decided to learn BSL when I had a patient whom was deaf and blind. This made communicating extremely difficult due to Covid-19 and relatives not being able to visit to assist in communicating. I began by learning my name and signing it onto his hand and learning basic BSL such as ‘food, drink, good, bad, pain, toilet’. This is another world of communication I realised I needed to be able to do my job effectively and help gain a relationship with my patients who cannot verbally communicate. I’m very excited to use these skills I have learnt so far.

    • Hi Anja, Not sure if you still need help with this but I did the below video for you. Sentence structure as follows - "Hello Anja" "Nice meet you" "Name me what - Jeet" "Your question" "Try this" "Give, mobile phone, please" Happy for anyone to come in and correct any of the above, i only got my certification last week Friday.  
    • Hi everyone I’m Charlotte I work in retail and while we have been furloughed I thought I would use my time to learn basic sign language so that I can serve all of my Customers as at the moment it must be difficulty hard of hearing customers as we have no one that can sign
