Introduce Yourself - from BLS course


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am mum to an 18 month old who has bilateral hearing loss so this is the main reason for learning BSL in order to allow us a way of communicating when she doesn't have her aids in. 

Apart from being mum I am a neonatal nurse in NICU, so although it doesn't directly help my job it certainly will make things easier if we have any deaf parents in the unit.

Hi everyone,

My name is Jess and I'm 15, i always wanted to learn BSL and my friends have been learning too. I thought that during lockdown, it would be the best time to take the course online. I won't lie, I'm not very good, I can sign the basic things like 'thank you' and i can sign numbers, but I really wanted to learn and be able to communicate with the deaf community through BSL. I aim to finish the course and use BSL more when communicating with people.

Thanks everyone!

Hi everyone. 

Nice to meet you all. There's such an interesting range of people here. At the moment I am overseas working as an assistant professor but I'll be coming back to the UK in the summer and I want to be able to communicate with any deaf people that I meet.

Hey everyone! I'm Lydia. 

I'm very new to BSL too, my main reason for starting is that I'm a paediatric nurse and some of the children I look after use BSL so it will be beneficial and useful to be able to communicate through BSL to the child rather than talking to the parents. 

 

How's everyone finding it at the minute?
