Hello from Esther in Wiltshire

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My name is Esther and I studied Level 1 in Bristol earlier this year and started Level 2 in Bath in September.

I first learnt a little bit of BSL when I was about 9 or 10 - I found the BSL alphabet in the back of a dictionary and taught myself and then my brother so we could talk without my parents knowing what we were saying :D. I have been fascinated ever since and have learnt odd signs here and there from people or the internet.

When my son was little I taught him the alphabet and together we learnt a few useful words (Toilet, so he didn't have to yell out where he was going) and some useful shopping words such as Milk, Cheese and bread

I love learning BSL but do struggle with Receptive skills so always on the look out for recommendations re resources, websites, videos, clips etc.

    • Hi my name is Jenny.  I am a mainstream primary school intervention teacher and speech therapy coordinator.  I have a good knowledge in Makaton but want to learn BSL so I can support our hearing impaired children and their parents/carers. 
    • Hello, my name is Caroline, I am 38 and from Newport. I will be going to college in September to study childcare and health and social care. I believe that BSL should be taught compulsory in all schools from nursery age. My youngest was in nursery with a lovely young boy who had become deaf, he relied on his friends being able to sign to communicate. This is what prompted me to uptake BSL.
