I have been working my way through this introductory course for a few weeks now and am really enjoying it. I attended a short course many years ago and really enjoyed it, since then I kept wanting to come back to it so I decided lockdown was the perfect opportunity. I think it will be a great opportunity to learn a new skill and connect more :)
Hi everyone! I have been wanting to learn BSL for years and years now and finally found a good online course where I can learn it! I'm still in school but hope to go to university next year to study to be a Paramedic so, I thought it would be a great skill to have so that I am able to communicate with everyone whenever needed. I only started yesterday but I have learnt the alphabet and I am now going to start the course. Do yous have any tips for starting off? 😀
I've been doing the course for a few weeks now and really enjoying it!! I've always had an interest in sign language and wanted to learn for so long, but now I'm currently writing my dissertation on deaf theatre and of course a lot of that constitutes looking into sign - so I thought it would be a rewarding, and useful experience for me as an actor to learn sign and understand it more.
I am a Specialist teaching Assistant for CYP with Visual Impairment and crossing over to Hearing Impairment. Previously I worked in a SEN school and used Makaton sign, as I have been in my new role I thought it would be good for me to learn BSL and my team suggested the online course, which I am enjoying.
I'm a student teacher and recently took part in a BSL workshop hosted by some of my peers who had experience with signing. I really enjoyed the workshop and was keen to learn more so I decided to take the BSL Course. I'm really enjoying it so far and I'm surprised as to how quickly I am learning. I can see the benefits of using BSL in my future classroom to make learning more inclusive and interactive as well as for my own personal interest.
