why did i decide to learn bsl

Recommended Posts

well , i decided to learn because of my verbal communication issues !

im starting a new college course this september & id like to have at least a rudimentary grasp on bsl by then so that when i go non-verbal i can still be involved , well , at least a little bit since i doubt anyone else will know any bsl 

either way its a new language & maybe this time i will actually be able to stick with it since its a language i need in my day-to-day life ( as long as the non-manual skills needed to learn dont screw me over first haha ! )

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
