Introducing myself and why I am Learning BSL


Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Marnie , I am currently on furlough and decided to do a course. I choose to do BSL course as we have a regular  customer who comes into my work who is deaf , and I had some very basic knowledge . So I thought I would like to expand my knowledge and be able to communicate  with this customer more and anyone else. I am enjoying doing the course and have be teaching my 2year old granddaughter a few signs , especially when she is colouring which helps me as well.  I find when out walking my dogs I will be practicing or if I hear a word I will be fingerspelling it .

    • Hello everyone, I am new here, just started the BSL course. I have been looking to learn BSL for years ... with the lockdown, finally I decided. And I learning a lot and enjoying this online course.
    • Hi  I decided to set myself the challenge of learning sign language as I believe it is a valuable skill to have 
    • Hi Everyone, I have been learning sign on and off for a while now but have really gotten into learning again. My dad is half deaf and losing his hearing in his other ear now, however he doesn't sign! I think it just inspired me to research into BSL and organisation etc. I am also studying nursing so at some point in the future I will most likely use my sign knowledge in one way or another. Hope everyone is keeping well during these difficult times and I look forward to learning from these forums too!!(:
    • The main reason I’m learning is BSL is that I want to be a doctor. As a doctor I will have to communicate with lots of different people and I though it would be really valuable  for me to be able to communicate with a whole community of deaf and Hoh people. I also think being able to communicate in BSL will help me build trust with patients as I will be able to communicate in a way that suits them. Another big reason I want to learn BSL it’s that it’s really fun and I’ve always been fascinated by sign language. 
    • Everyone welcome to practice signing with Gary and I on Saturday 20th March, 11 o'clock. You can see Gary's video in the practice zone

    • Hi, my name is Charlotte and I’m currently learning level 2 BSL. Really struggling tbh. Especially following conversation, I seem to have a terrible short term memory!    If anyone has any tips or resources they used that was helpful, I would love to know. I would at least like to eventually get to level 3.  Thanks in advance, Charlotte
