Jessica B

New Learner of BSL

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My name is Jess and I am a Primary School Teacher. In my job, I often come across children with additional needs and I'm interested to learn BSL so that I can communicate better with children who suffer from hearing loss. 

I am also a languages teacher and figured that I have invested time in learning a foreign language so why not therefore invest time in learning a language as valuable as BSL?

I am a little apprehensive after signing in to my new course BSL Levels one and two (which thankfully I have one year to complete) however, I am also very excited to begin a new journey and learn such an important skill.  I am a complete beginner!

If you have any advice or time to practise/ things to share with me, I would be immensely grateful.

Thanks and best wishes to you all.

Jess.

Hello Jess, I’m Peter at 87 profoundly deaf, been attempting to learn BSL for three years, watching videos, getting nowhere! However, this year I was introduced to www.signaturelearinghub.co.uk! Now galloping ahead! Jess, take a look at www.signaturelearinghub.co.uk. I took out a one year's subscription! The study elements are great, the dictionary comprehensive! I also use for addition vocabulary, YouTube, which has lots of free BSL learning material by different BSL instructors! Wishing good progress!   Peter

    • As I work at a company that create material for children, I wish by learning more about BSL I would be able to understand better how to support children with special needs or create resources that support them, especially when I used to work at a childcare centre where most TA would struggle with children with autism; through sign language, it allows them to communicate better and I can be part of the change that make it easier for anyone that would appreciate the assistance.

Now that social distancing  & masks are being worn she has 2 new additional barriers to learning & communication.  So I want to learn BSL to help her. I'm not confident or fluent yet but I've passed on a few signs I've learnt so far. Our aim is to reach a good level of
    • Hi I'm Kezia, I have always wanted to learn BSL but have struggled with learning other languages. I decided to finally give it a go and am really enjoying it so far.  Now that we all have to wear masks due to Covid I feel that it is more important than ever to learn.
    • I've been meaning to for a long time - largely for a friend from uni who is deaf (at the moment it's mostly a case of "we get our phones out and type") but also because I'm autistic and sometimes struggle to get my words out when I'm in distress so it's good to have an alternative!
