why am i learning B S L


Recommended Posts

I am learning BS L as its been a personal goal of mine for years.

I was originally interested in makaton but i saw the website for BSL and i realized the course was for £25 and felt so excited at the fact it was so affordable i signed up straight away. The reason this has been a goal is that i've had trouble with my ears for a long time, even when i was a young boy, I'm not deaf but i have had hearing problems over the years. Also when i worked in retail ive been in situation where sign language would have been quite useful.

another great thing about learning sign language is, i could pass it on to my children and maybe even use it to wind my wife up ;)

Hello Oliver,

yes it really is interesting stuff the guy who invented it got an MBE i believe or something to that extent.

 another reason strangely enough, was when my children were younger, they used to like watching Mr tumble (Justin Fletcher) to which i also believe uses it as well.

There was also this funny story that intrigued me, and that was, good old Justin was teaching the kids swear words in sign language, he got into a bit of trouble for that but i find it hilarious just thinking about it.
