Why am i learning BSL.


Recommended Posts

As a person who is neurodiverse I tend to jump from subject to subject not really knowing what i want to do in life, not every neurodiverse person will be confused about what they want to do that is just my personal experience. However for a very long time I've always loved sign language over the years i learned a few songs and phrases however upon thinking about what i want to do as my career in the past year I decided that I wanted to learn BSL and use it to do something good with my future job, not only that but also do what i love for a job. I'm very happy to be taking the course I am, and to have been able to take my classes and I'm very motivated to complete this course and hopefully get my level 1 qualification.

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
