Enjoying learning all the signs


Avva

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am an Assistant head teacher and English teacher in a secondary special needs school. Although we don't have any deaf students at present I wanted to learn sign language as I have a hearing disorder called Otosclerosis. I have had hearing aids for 5 years now and my hearing is not improving so want to be prepared for the future although I am very good at lip reading. Having suffered from hearing deficiencies since childhood, I think that learning sign language in school as a lesson is really important for all children just like learning a foreign language. Since starting the course I have been teaching some of my students sign language and they have thoroughly enjoyed using it.

    • I have nothing to do with Deaf/deaf community, but my mum is a carer and had learnt some BSL as a part of that, it sparked an interest in me. I am SUCH a beginner but hope to improve using this site. For now I use Commanding Hands on Youtube to learn.
    • I'm an Access Officer at Pembrokeshire County Council; learning BSL is a natural part of understanding and working with part of our community, so I'm starting my BSL learning journey - I@m not a natural at languages, and have no close family of friends who use BSL so I think I might have to work quite hard at this - I hope I do ok!
