Why am I learning BSL?
By Ian Nickson · PostedHello everyone, Many years ago I spent time working with a deaf person, when he moved on to better things I promised him that I would learn sign language. Here I am finally fulfilling my promise.
By David Pont · PostedHello Everyone, my name is David and I have recently started the BSL course online. I have progressive hearing loss and at present wear hearing aids in both my ears, my early life was in the Royal Artillery and I also play the saxophone (no surprises why I'm losing my hearing!). As I have been informed that I will continue to lose my ability to hear I thought I best start learning BSL now. My daughter is learning with me, so hopefully we'll be able to help each other along and practice what we l
Hi I am Vicky. I decided to do the introduction to sign language course mainly as learning a new skill that may be useful in the future. However I also work in education as a teacher so it may be useful if I ever work with students with hearing impairments.
I have started this course to help learn the basic signs and conversation gestures, expressions and cues to help me with a future venture in teaching BSL. I currently teach in a primary school and have a sign teacher that comes in each week to teach my class. It has always been something I have been passionate/interested in and I have decided to just go for it to help me daily with my 2 little boys and also to use in my classroom.
Hello everybody, I am Aimee, 32, from Lancashire. I am currently on Maternity leave with my 11 week old little boy and have started this course as it is something I have always been interested in and am looking for a new adventure alongside my normal teaching job of teaching BSL. I am very excited to start this journey :)
Hi Sarah, I hope you are well. I warmly welcome and wish you all the best with your language-learning journey! Chey xx
Hi, I'm chey. I'm looking for a study buddy with a fair amount of knowledge of BSL. I passed the introduction course here during covid, and I'm doing my level 1 (I think) at university. I hope to hear some someone soon xx.
Hiya! Originally I began looking into learning a few helpful signs and I tend to go nonverbal when upset or overstimulated in public/busy situations. I began to develop an interest in learning the language as a whole as I found the communication to be relaxing and fun to learn. I'm hoping to at some point be able to speak with people who use BSL as their primary language and to learn more about the community as a whole, as well! 🤗
