Hello!

Hello! my name is Becky, I  just started learning BSL last week and I have been really enjoying it so far.  I  noticed there are a few practice rooms on here that  have been empty whenever I have logged in. I wondered if anyone/ or a few of us would like to  "meet up" at a regular time each week to practice. Maybe one evening a week?. All of the Deaf clubs near me have closed down, so it would be lovely to have a place to practice and improve.

Hi Becky

 

That would be a lovely idea as I have trained before in BSL and have got a bit rusty and need to refresh my knowledge. I work with young people and in the community it is difficult to know when your skills are needed. This being Deaf awareness week made me feel I needed to carry on with my online course and try to get less rusty.

    • Hello. I am trying to learn BSL as I am a riding coach with a riding for the disabled group. I have a hearing impaired rider who I coach who uses BSL. I have learned some signs, finger spelling (very slow) and numbers, and we can communicate a bit but I would like to know more so I can explain things better. We also have several younger riders who use Makaton. 
    • I started to learn BSL during the pandemic but did not get very far as I struggled to find the motivation. Since then I worked in retail where I met customers who were hard of hearing and was able to remember the alphabet in BSL, and found it so helpful and a lovely experience when those individuals were able to communicate with me rather than through a friend who was not hard of hearing. I now want to continue my knowledge and skills in BSL to make myself more available to other people and thei

    • Hello! My name is Elysia and I am really looking forward to learning BSL!  
    • For a variety of reasons! I am autistic, and spend a significant part of my time unable to communicate verbally. However, since no one I know had any knowledge of BSL, and I didn't feel able to ask them to learn just for me, I didn't really see it as an option. However, I met a friend who is in a similar situation to me, who chose to learn anyway, and taught their parents rudimentary BSL themselves. This made me decide to try to do so as well, if only to communicate with them better as well. I f
