EPQ with Sign Language ^^

Recommended Posts

Hello!! New to this site, but very excited to see that resources for BSL out there are on the rise!

I'm going into college in a week's time, and as part of my A Level choices, I will also be completing an EPQ "Extended Project Qualification", which is worth half an A Level, additionally. It can be on any topic, and I have chosen to conduct a social experiment based understanding BSL and how to communicate with members of the deaf community. I will be using earphones/headphones to block all sound for three days during the school regime, and recording easy signs to encourage other hearing students to communicate in a preferred way with those that struggle with impaired hearing, we have quite a few in our Year group. I think these students should have a right to communicate with others in the way they feel most comfortable with in the same way we do, and to assure them that they are not necessarily at a disadvantage! The aim of the experiment for me is really to open other people's eyes to the difficulties students in particular face when deaf, which others take for granted. It must be so isolating! So, I wanted to do this to encourage a better understanding of our peers and hopefully kickstart learning BSL in my college!! :) Any opinions on this would be much appreciated, especially recordings 😂😂 :D

    • Hi, I am Rachael and I signed up to learning sign language as I have been taught the basics through speech and language to help my son who has Down’s syndrome. This will help him learn aswell as me and also his other siblings can communicate with him.

    • Hi Anja, Not sure if you still need help with this but I did the below video for you. Sentence structure as follows - "Hello Anja" "Nice meet you" "Name me what - Jeet" "Your question" "Try this" "Give, mobile phone, please" Happy for anyone to come in and correct any of the above, i only got my certification last week Friday.
