why i want to learn sign language.


Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Imogen Farmer, I'm 16 years old and i have been wanting to learn sign language for the longest time now.

In the future i would love to become a Nanny or look after children with special needs. I think learning sign language will be a great skill to have in my life to help with my future career. This is my first time ever looking at sign languge so obviously i am on the beginners course but i'm actually finding it quite easy and scoring really high on the assessments at the end of each part.

People have always told me that i will be great working with special needs children as i am kind, caring, very patient, nurturing, a good role model and sensible.

i think that BSL is an amazing thing that is so helpful for so many people and in my opinion very easy to learn and i think it is really going to help me in the future.

    • Hi, I am Lyn. I am learning BSL as I had a head injury a few years ago. I lost most of my hearing and my speech was impaired for a while. It was quite frightening as I couldn't really communicate with people although I could understand. I found people made assumptions about what was going on particularly Doctors and medical staff. I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
