Hiya!

My name's Louise, and I'm learning BSL as one of a number of different languages during lockdown.  I tried a couple of different courses, but eventually found british-sign.co.uk, which is really brilliant.  I'm three modules in and really enjoying it so far.  I've been interested in learning BSL for years - I was signed up to do a course at an Adult Education centre many years ago, but they cancelled it before we could start and never rescheduled.  I don't quite feel up to having a conversation in BSL with anyone just yet, but I've been demonstrating the signs to my partner and a couple of my friends, which has been helping them stick in my head.  I don't know anyone who uses BSL normally, but I work in theatre, so I have come across a lot of BSL interpreters with shows, and I love watching them work.  I'm excited that I might be able to understand a little more of what they're saying next time I watch them!

Hi Louise,

I've been also learning BSL and decided to improve as much as I can. Try to make friends with deaf people, it'll help a lot. It helps me :) BesBesides I really love deaf community.  I believe this forum might be a good platform to achieve that. I also decided to start my blog and website to present my thoughts in English and BSL although both languages aren't my first languages. I love challenges in life. I'm trying to present the wideos with subtitles, and subtitles are meant to be in BSL syntax. Check it out and tell me what you think. It's still in progress.  www.sign2feel.com and YouTube channel with one video for now, alphabet video.

All the best 

Greg

    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
    • Hello. I am trying to learn BSL as I am a riding coach with a riding for the disabled group. I have a hearing impaired rider who I coach who uses BSL. I have learned some signs, finger spelling (very slow) and numbers, and we can communicate a bit but I would like to know more so I can explain things better. We also have several younger riders who use Makaton. 
    • I started to learn BSL during the pandemic but did not get very far as I struggled to find the motivation. Since then I worked in retail where I met customers who were hard of hearing and was able to remember the alphabet in BSL, and found it so helpful and a lovely experience when those individuals were able to communicate with me rather than through a friend who was not hard of hearing. I now want to continue my knowledge and skills in BSL to make myself more available to other people and thei

    • Hello! My name is Elysia and I am really looking forward to learning BSL!  
    • For a variety of reasons! I am autistic, and spend a significant part of my time unable to communicate verbally. However, since no one I know had any knowledge of BSL, and I didn't feel able to ask them to learn just for me, I didn't really see it as an option. However, I met a friend who is in a similar situation to me, who chose to learn anyway, and taught their parents rudimentary BSL themselves. This made me decide to try to do so as well, if only to communicate with them better as well. I f
    • British sign language has been something I’ve always wanted to learn. Although I’m not deaf, I struggle to hear and rely a lot on lip reading. I also work in a school with children with special educational needs and feel like BSL could come in very useful for children who communicate in the same way as others. I’ve always thought that BSL should be part of the English curriculum in schools.
