Hi there! 👋


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these strange times 😊

Just wanted to introduce myself and what my reason is for starting BSL.
My names Nicola and Like many I wanted to learn a new skill during this last couple of months in and out of lockdown and as my grandma loses her hearing more it got me thinking about why we’re not taught some sign language earlier in our lives to allow us to communicate with all and in case we were to lose our own hearing at some point in our lives. Whilst she might not be able to learn it now I wanted to learn more about sign language as I’ve always been intrigued by it and as I learn it more and more about it, it makes me realise even more now where things should be made more accessible to those who are deaf or hard of hearing.

i would love this to be something that is brought into the education system to ensure a more inclusive society for deaf and herd of hearing!

Hope everyone’s signing journeys are going well ☺️

    • A close family member of mine lost his hearing towards the end of his life, and he found it incredibly difficult and isolating. He struggled to learn BSL, but he (and I!) were always so grateful when people made sure things like films, speeches etc. were made more accessible for him. Working in customer service reminded me of how important accessibility is, and I am really excited to learn to sign!
    • I'm just starting out learning sign language, I learned how to finger spell at school but never got beyond that! I'm really keen to learn more and improve over lockdown.
    • Hey yall! Im new to learning BSL properly as i have only being doing them online on youtube. I am ready to learn my heart out and i love the community here. I dont have any ear troubles of my own but i thought it would be nice to learn BSL for anyone who is. I am not new however to medical stuff as i have 2 conditions, Loyiz detez syndrome or LDS and Scoliosis as some will know more about. I know how tuff it is to find someone who understands what im going through and i want to be the person that understands what deaf people are going through. I have already done Level 1 and im ready to take it to the next level. Thanks for listening to my story. Bye xxx
    • Hi, my names Celia and i am currently enrolled on the BSL course. Im really enjoying it so far and hope to make some good progress in the rest of lockdown :)
    • Hi Sarah,   I don't know if this is of any use. I did a level two on course mix. It didn't have any videos so difficult to understand. However did cover early grammer structure and a few new words I hadn't learn't on this level one course. Last week however I found a level 3 which I believe was still with course mix but said it had videos and you didn't have to have any knowledge of BSL at all, but some would be useful. If you go for it please let me know what you think. I am working through a book at present then looking for a level 3 course. Happy signing Sue  
    • Hi all 👋  I've been umming and ahhing about throwing myself in and learning BSL, and I can now proudly say that I've not long started my journey! (very early days and currently only 2 weeks in!)                                As I'm so new to it all right now I'm not too sure whether having someone to practice with would be the best thing (I could probably only sign certain colours and numbers to you haha!), but I'd absolutely like to be able to practice with some of you when I can to help build and embed my knowledged as I would through my course.    I work for a Bank and work from home due to Covid so I don't tend to see anybody to be able to practice, so I'm super excited that I've found this group and can get to know some of you 🙂  Speak to you soon, Anna x
    • Hi there!   I am Jolandi and I recently started with BSL. I am an inspiring teacher and therefore, learning BSL might come in handy one day. 
    • Good Afternoon, I am very new to BSL , I thought it would be a great thing to learn. Also I have a lot of free time as I am a singer in lockdown. And thought it would be great for future career options. I am very scared about actually conversing with someone but would love to at some point. though it might be a very slow conversation. Helen
