I am currently carrying out research around this area. It would make a big difference if people could take their time to fill out this questionnaire after reading the consent form. I am teacher in training, currently writing a report on 'how can we implement sign language into mainstream school to promote inclusion'. parent questionaire.docx online consent letter.docx

I am 14 and  learning BSL in school and I am going to do my grade 1 exam. When BSL started in my school a lot of people wanted to learn it (90) however the number of people learning has now dropped to 10. I think the main reasons people stopped coming were time and commitment. The sessions are an hour and a half long and it is really difficult to focus for this long, also people felt that they had to come every single week. If BSL is taught in schools the sessions would need to be shorter.

    • Thank you so much! that is amazing what you're doing!  wish you the best of luck in your journey!!
    • Hi  I’m currently working in a primary school in Wales. There has been suggestions that I might be working with a 6 year old with a cochlear implant from September. Im here to improve my BSL to help them achieve the best they can 
    • That's great!  I'm taking level 2 ISL(Irish) right now.  Got a book of Bible Stories in English and Braille I'm working through too. I wish you the best of luck!
    • Hey, i'm new here. I'm coming to the end of my level 1 course now ready to start level 2. I am aiming to go all the way to persue my drea career as an interpretor. I am hoping to find some people here that would like to practice, so that our signing can get to be the est it can be!
    • It's a bit late to reply, though I think Let's Sign BSL Dictionary is one of the more impressive sign dictionaries.  ASL has "The Gallaudet Children’s Dictionary of American Sign Language" and the ISL(Irish) dictionary includes the first page with the alphabet, the explains each further sign with the alphabet introduced on the first page.  A good dictionary can be a good book I think. I only just noticed no one had answered your question, so I thought I might.
    • Hi all, hoping that you are really well. I undertook a BSL course around 25 years ago. I now have a little boy who requires us to sign to help him with his day to day life. It's surprising how much is coming back to me and how much I enjoy it!. Hoping that today is a good day for you :) 
    • It's great that you're going BSL, I'm sure you'll find friends with it. I haven't had any real conversations in sign language, I only picked ISL because it looked fun.  I do hope to finish the last class in the next month.  Thank you for the encouragement. I actually find Braille more testable since those I know aren't too interested in sign.  Braille is quite fun now with the different English and universal ones to learn, grade 1, 2, 3, UEB, math, and music.  It's nice to read dual te
