Hello everyone!!

My name is Ella and I've recently made the move from Ireland to the UK! Just before I moved, I decided to start the course on British sign to have something extra in case I ever came across a student who needed it. As luck would have it, I have started in the most amazing school in Kent which has a Deaf Resource Base, specifically for students (Deaf or deaf) who need some extra support. They take students once a week for speech and language therapy, some basic greetings are included for every tutor class to learn and the main DRB teacher is at every school assembly to sign what is being said. How amazing is that?! I've only ever worked in a school with a maximum of one or two hearing impaired students so to have such an incredible department right on the doorstep of my department has made me want to finish this course so I can be more involved in school life!

So, yes! That's a long winded introduction but HELLO!

    • Hello Im Harriet and i'm learning with my daughter Erika. We are learning BSL because my son has autism and is currently non verbal and we hope he will respond to signing.
    • Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone here can help me. I have written a play, a solo show, and there are a couple of sections in which I will be signing BSL. I completed a certifying basic BSL course, so I can sign, but these concepts are quite subtle and tricky (mainly about spirituality and religion, or certain specific actions such as 'stumbling'). I know some of them, found others online, but I still don't have all of them so I'm wondering whether anyone can send me in the right directi
    • Hi All, so I’ve had my hearing aid for approx. 1 year, started learning sign language a couple of weeks ago and seem to be getting on ok with the basics, I’m a gymnastics coach, personal trainer, I have a day job and I’m adult inclusive ice skater and I have two children who are also learning sign language with me so we can communicate if my hearing completely goes. 
    • Hi all, I thought I would answer the 'why?' question which I thought would be easier than it is! It made me think for sure! Learning BSL has for a long time been something I wanted to do and should have done a long time ago. As a youngster I spent time abroad and the friends I made at school didn't speak English and due to us being kids we just worked round it and communicated in our own version of gestures/signs. Over the months (I was the only English speaking kid there) we developed a pr
