Why I am learning BSL:

Recommended Posts

Hi! I decided to learn BSL for my boyfriend as he is deaf and I think that it is unfair for him to constantly make an effort to accomodate me by using lip reading and pen-writing, hence me learning this in an effort to bridge the language gap.

I wanted to learn for a while now , my cousin is deaf and even though I have seen her for a while , when we hung out when I was younger though we communicated fine I wanted to learn BSL , but being young and growing up got in the way ! but now I am older and eager to learn at least some of the basics - I hope !

    • 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 ☺️
