I decided to learn BSL because...


Recommended Posts

I decided to learn BSL the moment a post popped up about a BSL course starting.  I was extremely shy and didn't talk much during a very difficult childhood, and it's during that time I learned the BSL alphabet.  All these years later, the alphabet had stayed in the recesses of my mind, and I feel that learning BSL is a natural step for me.  Then I started to think more deeply about it and started to observe all the instances of equality, so here I am, working at improving myself so that I can contribute, where once I couldn't.

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
