Never too late to learn - hopefully


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I signed up for this course 2 years ago and then life got in the way and I forgot all about it. Now, here I am, determined to give it my best shot.

I  have limited experience of BSL (and Makaton) through my various care jobs over the years but I am hoping that this time I will be successful in my studies. I hope to have better communication with my granddaughter who is 5 years old. She is deaf and autistic. She is non verbal and communication (or lack of it) is becoming more and more of a frustration for her and everyone supporting her.

I'm in my 60's but I hope that my brain is able to retain at least some of what I am learning!

    • I'm not deaf or hard of hearing, but I'm a secondary school teacher with a number of children with varying hearing difficulties, and a father who wears hearing aids. I figure that as well as being fascinating to learn (I love learning new things), it's a skill that could be really beneficial to me too.
    • I'm training to become a GB sub officer and feel that learning bsl will help my company to be more inclusive to children with hearing difficulties 
    • I'm new to signing and can't quite figure it out !!!

    • Hi Martin You are not alone! Have you had any signing experience before? If not, have you found BSL to have helped you communicate? Wen 
    • Hi Megan I know it's been a few days since you posted this but I am 24 and took up BSL after learning more about the Deaf community thanks to Rose, and would be more than happy to talk with you? Thanks   Wen

    • Hi I’m Frankie I’m 19 years old from Birmingham I have been learning for just over a year now and have completed my Level 1,2,3 but I’ve come to a stand still as I really need some interaction with people but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of places for jobs or volunteers if anyone could help with this or would be willing to meet up that would be great!
