Hello! Introducing myself...

Recommended Posts


My name's Rebecca, I'm 27 years old and I am hearing. I usually work as an optical assistant but am currently not working due to the pandemic. I wanted to use this free time to do something worthwhile, I studied languages at university and wanted to learn something new, so I decided upon BSL, as it would be a different kind of challenge as I primarily learn by writing things down to remember them, so have had to adapt to learning a more physically involved language. I have previously worked teaching English and had to find different ways to put across ideas without just using words. I have also  met patients at work who use sign language and communicated with them with an interpreter while doing optical tests and dispensing glasses. I also met a young boy who was non verbal and used a small amount of signs at school and at home, he taught me the sign for Gruffalo as he was getting Gruffalo glasses, it was a lovely moment to share that with him. I would have loved to be more involved in these experiences, and I am hoping learning BSL will open up different ways of communicating with others. Thanks for reading!

    • Hello everyone! My name is Jason and I am trying to learn BSL using the online course over on british-sign; I'm about half way through it at the moment. I became more interested in learning to sign because I feel as though everyone should be able to communicate and it seems unfair that BSL isn't - or at least wasn't when I was at school - part of the standard curriculum. I was also inspired to start learning because of seeing more deaf representation being portrayed in the media (such as Co
