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)

Hi Vicky, I joined the forum last week. I believe there are some members who are of a similar age to your daughter so hopefully someone will reach out to you, in the meantime any other questions you have please feel free to ask :).

Thank you! I really hope so, its such a great opportunity for them to make new friends whilst becoming more confident in their signing.

Take care and thanks again :)

Hi Vicky! I am learning level 1 the same as your daughter! I know I am slightly older (20) but once I learn more I'd love to practice with your daughter if she's up for it :)

    • Hello I am very new to signing but I am also keen to practice... 
    • Hi, My name is Paula and I decided to learn BSL during lockdown as I have been teaching and I thought it would be good if my learners could at least know how to say “ hello” or “can I help” In sign language so I thought I could bring bits of signing into my lessons.
    • Hi everyone! My name is Hira and I am 19 years old. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy at University and had my first placement last December. Through volunteering and my placement, I have realised how important it is to know the basics of signing in order to communicate with others. For my career, I want to learn BSL so I can sign certain topics with children who have language difficulties during therapy sessions etc. I also love developing skills and although BSL seems really tricky as
    • I have been interested and fascinated by the Deaf community for a while now. Also, I hate the idea that I wouldn't be able to make friends due to differences in language/ability. I want everyone to feel included and comfortable around me regardless of differences. This is why I am learning BSL. 
    • *sighs nervously and waves hand* hello I am Akira. I have been drawn to the Deaf community for a while and decided to act upon it today and no I do not know any Deaf people. I am interested in making friends here though as I am a beginner. hope to hear from you all soon!! *waves bye, excitedly*
    • Hi Myself and my daughter, Kiera (12) decided to begin to learn British Sign Language. It is helpful that we are both learning together as we can continually practice, which we find to be very beneficial to remembering the signs. We would find it very rewarding to be able to speak to other people using sign language in the future. Hayley and Kiera 🙂

    • Hi all, I am brushing up on my BSL. I completed the level 1 BSL while at university many many years ago but I failed the exam! Since having children I did tiny talk (baby sign) which made a lot of it come back (although there are some different signs) I remember how much I enjoyed it and have decided to try and again!
