Why I'm learning BSL. (Partner's only language)

Hello everyone. 

I am Rosie and am new to the BSL forum. I started learning BSL one month ago as I started seeing someone who was born deaf. He is unable to speak and lacks basic reading and writing skills and so sign language is his only way that he can communicate effectively with others. Before our first date, I practiced sign language for the first time and gave myself four days to learn the basics and then if things went well between us, I'd then commit to it. I loved his personality instantly and knew that I wanted to continue seeing him and so that's why I then committed myself to learning. Communication is challenging at times, but definitely easier than I'd expected and our relationship is so unique and special to me. I really want to practice and learn more sign language skills, so that I can communicate to the best of my ability with my partner and continue our happy relationship together. :)

    • 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.
