Hi Clair, I am also a Teaching Assistant but in a Primary School setting. I have started to learn as it is something I have wanted to try for a longtime now. I have worked with children using Makaton for a while now and am looking at BSL as a way to enhance and broadening my horizons as I would like to work with SEN children of all ages. I am also doing it along side my Daughter who is learning for her Bronze D of E.
I have just signed up to Introduction to BSL via the BSL website, although I know there are several courses available. I would be happy to practice with you. I will understand though, if you want me to catch up with you a little. I have not started yet.
Hi, my name is Niamh (Neve) and I'm 20 years old student. I taught myself sign language when I was 8 however, I forgot it over time and given the current situation like a lot of people I thought I would learn in again. I would love if anyone would like to practice with me and kinda cheer each other on to complete everything :) let me know!!!
I am learning BSL in a hope to learn a new skill, and the idea that it can support my career when I become a teacher. I am interested in working with children with special needs so i'm sure it will be beneficial.
Hello, my name is Florence and I am a 22 year old student and training to be a primary school teacher.
I am trying to learn new skill, and think that BSL could support me throughout my career if I can learn it. I am trying my best at the beginners course.
What are the most beneficial ways in which people practice? Would love to know!
