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.

    • Hi, I'm a musician and artist and learning BSL to improve my communication skills and start the process of developing performances/artwork/events that are suitable and interesting for both D/deaf and hearing audiences/artists. Learning BSL online seemed like a good place to start and a way to connect with people. I co-direct an experimental sound festival based in the Midlands and we would like to develop some new work with D/deaf and hearing artists to make multi-media performances/artworks.  I

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills.
