As I am going through the BSL online foundation, I have taken time out to introduce myself here.

 

A little about me, I initially 'cut my teeth' with real basic BSL when I was doing voluntary work for a local PHAB (physically handicapped and Able Bodied) charity when I was serving in the RAF.

I've now felt it's time to pick up where I left off many many years ago and, for my own diversity,  decided to do some formal training.

 

It came as a surprise to my boss when I put BSL on my annual learning goals for the year but, as I informed him, I wasn't aware of anyone in our company that uses sign language and it can only help our company in its goals to be a fully inclusive workplace for all.

 

Apologies for the really bad signing in the video 😁

Hello, I'm learning Australian Sign Language here in Melbourne, Australia. This language is known as Auslan, and is derived from BSL and--I think--mutualy intelligible, or more or less. The alphabet is the same anyway, so I like using the BSL fingerspelling challenge. I'm learning Auslan because I love learning  languages, and can't travel at the moment. There aren't enough Auslan interpreters so that is my goal, although it will take me 4-5 years of study,  at least.
