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 started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people! 
    • I'm learning BSL because I'm deeply involved in campaigning on social issues and want to help with accessibility in those movements.
    • Hello everyone! I've been interested in sign language since I was taught and introductory course when I was a lot younger and now have the time to continue that education and learn it properly.
