Newbie to BSL in London

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

My name is Fran. I've made learning BSL my 2022 New Years Resolution. 

I've not really met anyone learning/needing to use BSL to communicate, so it's really been a solo effort to try and learn something new!

I hope that one day, with a bit more confidence I might be able to organise the occasional BSL weekend coffee morning in North-West London area, where new learners (like me) and more experienced people might be able to get together and help each other develop their BSL skills as well as work towards making awareness of BSL in the community.. and maybe even make some friends!! But I've got a few more lessons to learn first!

  • FranF changed the title to Newbie to BSL in London

I'm absolutely loving it so far! After I finish a lesson I go to my parents/boyfriend saying: ... give me a colour/city/country/job!!! and then proceed to sign what they say. In less than two weeks I feel like I've learnt so much :D

    • It is fantastic, I try to revise what I have learnt, after work. I am trying not to rush the course, but have noone to practice with.
    • Our next British Sign Language Level 3 course is starting on Monday 7th February! This course runs every Monday from 6pm - 9pm for 48 weeks and takes place at our London Training Centre.   This course will enable you to communicate in British Sign Language at Level 3 of the National Occupational Standards for Languages.   Our BSL Teachers will take your signing skills to the next level and have you communicating with more confidence and fluidity.  
    • I have always had an interest in BSL since a young age even when I didn’t need hearing aids and I agree there should be the opportunity for pupils to learn BSL in school. 
    • Hello Neil - same here! I have hearing aids (which changed my life) but I know it's only going to get more difficult to hear as time moves on. It's fabulous that you are teaching your children too - I honestly wish BSL was mandatory at schools! Good luck with your studies!
    • Hi Claudette - I am also learning online. Just started last week - it is a great way of learning I have found
    • Hi everyone My name is Chris and I am 49. I wear two hearing aids but it is likely I'll grow deafer over the years.  My wife is a nurse who has a Deaf student at the moment. His interpreter recommended I start learning BSL sooner rather than later just in case. It is something I have always danced around and had an interest in. The recommendation coupled with the young lady on Strictly (big fans in our house!) made me sign up to the fab course. I've done lessons one and two and passed both.
    • Hi everyone, I am slowly getting though level one, I am doing bsl online, as there are no classes near me and I don't drive. Is there anyone that would love to practice with me.  
    • Just started the course yesterday and so far so good! Completed the first few modules no problem, but I'm sure things will get more difficult from here. Loving the learning experience!  I also love that the BSL course is currently available for just £3 at the minute, meaning there's no financial reason stopping anyone that wants to learn. Although I paid the full fee, I think it's a great short term move!
