Why I am learning BSL ! :)

Recommended Posts

I chose to learn BSL at first because I was simply interested in it; just as anyone would learn any language, I thought it'd be something to learn for fun and to allow me to connect with people that I wouldn't have been able to have I not known BSL. Though this is definitely a big big part of why I'm learning, another factor is that I would like to go into the teaching profession, specifically primary. I think that knowing some BSL would be so beneficial to children who communicate through sign language to ensure they feel included and less isolated in a school of hearing students and teachers. I want to make sure that I can communicate with all of my students effectively to ensure inclusivity within my classroom :) 
Not only that, I think it would be amazing in my future, perhaps at university, to be able to, as I mentioned before, make new friends that I wouldn't be able to without knowing sign language! By learning, I will be able to communicate with so many more people :)

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
