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 AIP27, I think it would just be - Ready Go, Unless anyone else knows different.
    • My name is Laura and I am completing the BSL course as I am a student nurse and I hope to enhance my communication skills.

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
