Hi I'm Marielle. I used to learn BSL when I was younger with my sister in Primary school in an afterschool club but have not gotten back to it since then. Now that I am older, I have always wanted to get back into it and re-learn it, especially now since I am working as a Nurse in the hospitals, I have come across many occasions where knowing BSL would have been helpful. I am hoping to learn more and expand my knowledge on BSL, as I would like to be able to communicate with not just my patients but anyone I come across. Any advice or resource links are appreciated. 

Hope everyone stays safe and well during the second lockdown.

    • hello i am julie from sunderland 
    • hello i am julie  i am 41 and live in sunderland tyne and wear i am waning to learn BSL because my husband is profoundly deaf and my son has  severe learning problems  \speech problems \medical problems \understanding problems\and communication problems \ and we have been told from cahms that my son needs to learn BSL to help him as well  
    • I everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and sane. I have signed up to this course to help my change in career. I lost my business due to covid and I am retraining to be a TA. Eventually I want to be in special education and gain a degree in BSL.
    • Hi all, I tried twice now to learn BSL but both attempts had fallen through, though I'm determined to get back to it. There's very little opportunity to use it in my day to day life as until now I've never been exposed to the Deaf community and ways of practice seemed few and far between.  This year however I started volunteering at an urban farm charity that focuses on educating children and special needs groups, we're often used as a school trip location for younger children. Our signs all have BSL on them for the animals, and one of the boss's kids is hard of hearing and uses sign language a lot when he's around. He's very sweet but I felt a crippling guilt when he started offering signs to me I wasn't familiar with, and he in turn didn't have the vocal capacity to explain what he was signing to me. I'm now determined to get back to learning it so that I can communicate with him better and maybe to stop him from feeling like he's talking to a brick wall (AKA me), and when we reopen after the next lockdown, perhaps I can have a bit more vocabulary up my sleeve to offer more communication opportunities for any other guests who use BSL.
    • Hope everyone is staying safe and are doing well to navigate their way through this season we are in. I was wondering if anyone was doing zoom groups to practice or if anyone lived near to kingswinford in the west midlands to meet up, socially distancing of course, again to practice once the restrictions were eased a little. Would like to practice, not long started and I am currently in school at work but don't want to loose what I have learned so far. thanks xx
    • Hey my name is Ellie. I’ve always been interested in sign language. And wasn’t really given the opportunity in my last job. But now I’m in lockdown, I come do something I’m passionate about, which could be helpful in the job I’m in now. 
    • Hi Sue, Thanks, I replied on another thread - very helpful.
