New Learner to sign- Deaf Personal Trainer

Rob T

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Im Rob im 24 years old from Preston in the UK. I am deaf in both ears and have been all my life. I'm learning sign language so that in the future I can help deaf people in fitness and help them achieve their fitness goals. I am currently living out in Australia in Melbourne. I would love to connect with as many of you as i can on instagram and help have some accountability for learning sign language.

Hi, Rob. Nice to meet you. 

I know that BSL, NZSL, and Auslan are related languages, so a grounding in one will probably get you started OK in the others. Be aware of the differences though.

As far as I know, the fingerspelling is the same – so you can always spell things out in the event of any confusion! All the best with your BANZSL journey. 😀

    • 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 ☺️
