Why I am learning BSL

Recommended Posts

I work in a FE/ HE mix college as a Library Assistant, we have a fantastic hearing impaired department so have lots of Deaf/deaf students. It would be fantastic to be able to directly communicate with the students without an LSA or interpreter with us. It could come in handy in the wider community too.

Hi Rachel   I work in a public library. I have been working from home since March mainly updating my statutory training and working on our library Facebook page , recording rhyme times & Story times etc  but felt I could put the time to good use by learning something new that would be beneficial in my library role. Hopefully learning BSL  will do that. Do you know what the sign is for library ? I wondered if its the same as book or reading. Good luck

    • Hi everyone,  My daughter Daisy (10) and I have signed up together to do this course as I have always loved to be able to learn and never felt confident enough to do it. My daughter had a one off lesson at school and came home saying 'wouldn't it be amazing to be able to talk to someone with hearing difficulties when no one else could do it' so here we are!

    • Hi all My name is Nadia (known as Badja). I am learning BSL to help me progress to be a SEN assistant in school and help children with learning difficulties to swim.  Hope you are all keeping safe and well  
    • Hello everyone. I am so happy I found this page as I am relatively new to signing and I could use a group like this with all you lovely people. I work as a SENDCo at a primary school. I was wondering if anybody here has come across a helpful scheme/program that I could use/adapt for our school. I want to make sure that children are taught the right level of BSL and the right topics but there is so little guidance out there. Thank you in advance!
    • Good morning, afternoon, evening! My name is Sirius, well technically it is my nickname but I don't go by my birth name. I am 25 years old, I used to work on psychiatric wards both private and NHS run but I quit my job as a support worker before the recent pandemic hit the UK.  I have always had a love for BSL, I have learned little bits a pieces here and there over the years but never anything substantial enough to communicate properly. I have decided to fully educate myself now because
    • Hello. Was just interested what sign language do you use if not BSL to communicate with your brother. Is there another sign language used in the UK?
    • Hi just started learning BSL. I'm a student paramedic so I figure it will be useful. Also looking forward to using it with my downs friend (who prefers signing to talking). So far I can spell, count, and make basic sentences and questions to do with locations, colours, and jobs. It's amazing, Ive only been learning a few days and I feel I can already have a (very) basic conversation.
    • My name is Beth, i am 24 and a qualified Occupational Therapist working in the NHS for 2 years. Working for the NHS during the lockdown period i continued to work, more shifts, later shifts and I had to adapt massively to the changes in service to meet the needs of our patients during lockdown and coronavirus.
