Absolute beginner in BSL

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm Chloe and I decided earlier this month that I want to learn British Sign Language. I have a few reasons to learn, such as making new friends, putting BSL on my CV, and picking it up as a new hobby.

In late September, I am planning to take part in a 10 week BSL introduction course. I would choose the cheaper options online but I find that I can learn quicker with a IRL teacher rather than just watching videos online.

Please feel free to chat with me, especially if you are also a beginner, or have some helpful tips!

 

Thank you x

    • 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.

My daughter has a hearing loss but opts to be unaided.   She manages so far in life to communicate & learn well and relies on close distance hearing and of lip patterns. 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!
