Hi, I am Angela

Hi, I am Angela.

I have always been fascinated by sign language and attended a beginners class several years ago.

More recently I have successfully completed a Makaton class to help support children with additional needs at a special school, but don't get to use it much as I am also a full-time student.

I love the idea of this website and hope to be a regular member.

Thanks for reading.

    • Hi! I’m from Melton Mowbray and I’d love to learn the sign name for the town if anyone here knows it. 🙂 (Maybe it’s a pork pie, haha!)
    • Hi I'm Lou and I'm training as a Primary School Teacher from September. I had a previous placement in a SEN school where I learnt some Makaton and I really enjoyed this and found it useful.

    • Hi, my name is Emma and I decided to start the BSL introducing sign language course this summer. I believe everyone has the right to communicate and as an aspiring solicitor I would love to be able to assist all the clients I may have in the future. This course means I will have a better chance of being able to advise clients who may be hard of hearing or have complete hearing loss. 
    • Hi all, I am a Teaching assistant in an FS2 class from September and will be providing SEND support to pupils with various needs, including communication difficulties.  I am trying to learn BSL to help these children communicate more effectively
    • I'm about to start as a Child/Mental Health Nurse and already have a degree in Psychology and Counselling. I'm studying this for a few reasons; to help in my future placements as a nurse, to help my husband learn as he's losing his hearing and to help my daughter who is autistic and struggles with facial social cues. BSL has been proven to help with autistic's language learning (spoken and non-spoken) whether they be verbal or non-verbal, that's probably the main reason I'm here.
    • Hello everyone,  My name is Dave and I am currently completing the BSL introductory course. I am a primary school teacher in a mainstream school who has decided to learn sign language for different reasons. The main one being due to being interested in helping children communicate who find it hard to verbalise and also to help tailor my teaching to help include children who have hearing loss.

    • Hi! I start as a Student Children/Mental Health Nurse in September and have wanted to learn BSL for a while, so I thought I would take this summer to brush up the very few signs I have known since childhood into an actual functioning working knowledge o the language so that I can better help future patients. I'd love to practise with someone, I'm starting lesson five today so I'm not exceptionally brilliant, but I'm eager! I'm currently struggling with the few different ways I've fou
