Support for my daughter


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Since lockdown my 16 year old daughter has been learning BSL level 1. Shes really enjoying it but she says she would like someone she can practice her signing with. I did my level 1 many years ago but its not cool practicing with your mum (apparently) so I just wondered if there were any other teenage girls who would like to buddy up for practice? When I did my BSL my tutor buddied me up with a lovely deaf lady and we used to meet at the pub once a week - shes knows she cant do that, so Im trying to help her in a different way!

Many thanks,

Vicky (on behalf of Neve)

    • I have always wanted to learn sign language and felt that now was the time to do it. I work in a school with children with special educational needs and feel like BSL would be very useful.
    • Hi  I would like to teach staff in the NHS the 12 days of Christmas in sign language. Does anyone have a link to website or know anywhere when I can get the song on paper so they can see photos of the signs as well as see me sign it? Thanks Nix

    • I have always enjoyed languages and I always thought that BSL looked like so much fun, I am really enjoying the online course that I am taking and I think that it will be very helpful in my future
    • BSL is something I've tried to learn a few times in my life, but never found the correct way to learn or keep it up. But there was a kid at a school was volunteering at that was deaf and it struck me how happy she was when my friend told her she was doing well at a task, and how little I could help her do the tasks we had planned for the session. I want to be able to communicate better with people. 
    • I decided to start learning BSL to learn a skill and to be able to communicate with more people more easier. I have worked in hospitality for coming up 6 years, and customer service being 8 years, and I would love to be able to use BSL to communicate with someone who uses it. I feel as not many people know the language (I certainly don't know anyone that knows BSL), I can imagine it would make a difference to someone's day and feel understood without having to use the means of pen and paper
    • Hi Jess! I have just joined this forum; your post was at the top. I have been doing a BSL course for a few weeks now, I've recently passed the assessment on jobs, greetings & places. I found that writing down the word then something I relate to that hand action helps me to learn and remember it. Then I'll wean myself off of it. Enjoying it too so far and totally with you wishing I had started earlier too!
