Hi everyone, I hope your all well.

My actual name is Dawn, but it had already been used, so I opted for Dolphin as that is my nickname at work. I like swimming in the sea, weather permitting.

I started the course during the second lockdown, but have only just plucked up the courage to join the forum, as I am not very good on computers and on line learning. Evening classes at college I found easier and more social to learn, but I am giving this a go. Well at least until we can go back to the old fashioned way of attending a college. Having completed a course many many years ago and then not using it, I decided it was time to have a go again. Also in my job with customers who come in to the Post Office and need help, who may be hard of hearing or completely deaf, I felt useless. Taking this course, I hope will help them to feel more comfortable when coming in to use the services.

Hi,

I am Ellie and i am currently training to be a teacher. I have always wanted to be able to sign and I thought it would be the perfect time to do it during lockdown and before I become a teacher. I am hoping it will enable me to provide an inclusive education for all :)

    • Our next British Sign Language Level 3 course is starting on Monday 7th February! This course runs every Monday from 6pm - 9pm for 48 weeks and takes place at our London Training Centre.   This course will enable you to communicate in British Sign Language at Level 3 of the National Occupational Standards for Languages.   Our BSL Teachers will take your signing skills to the next level and have you communicating with more confidence and fluidity.  
    • I have always had an interest in BSL since a young age even when I didn’t need hearing aids and I agree there should be the opportunity for pupils to learn BSL in school. 
    • Hello Neil - same here! I have hearing aids (which changed my life) but I know it's only going to get more difficult to hear as time moves on. It's fabulous that you are teaching your children too - I honestly wish BSL was mandatory at schools! Good luck with your studies!
    • Hi Claudette - I am also learning online. Just started last week - it is a great way of learning I have found
    • Hi everyone My name is Chris and I am 49. I wear two hearing aids but it is likely I'll grow deafer over the years.  My wife is a nurse who has a Deaf student at the moment. His interpreter recommended I start learning BSL sooner rather than later just in case. It is something I have always danced around and had an interest in. The recommendation coupled with the young lady on Strictly (big fans in our house!) made me sign up to the fab course. I've done lessons one and two and passed both.
    • Hi everyone, I am slowly getting though level one, I am doing bsl online, as there are no classes near me and I don't drive. Is there anyone that would love to practice with me.  
    • Just started the course yesterday and so far so good! Completed the first few modules no problem, but I'm sure things will get more difficult from here. Loving the learning experience!  I also love that the BSL course is currently available for just £3 at the minute, meaning there's no financial reason stopping anyone that wants to learn. Although I paid the full fee, I think it's a great short term move! 
    • Hi! I am not sure which level I am, but I think roughly level 2..... I am in the chatroom today while I'm working if anyone wants to join. I am in the mixed room
