Introducing myself


Recommended Posts

Hello,

My name is Sarge. I am a recent high school graduate heading to the UK for university at the end of the year. I've started learning BSL to keep my mind active over the hols as well as hopefully help my autistic younger brother communicate better. I've seen online that sign language may help children like him express themselves and I think this is very important, and being able to converse with d/Deaf in a way they may feel more comfortable with is a huge plus. 

Thank you,

Sarge

Hi Sarge. I see a lot of posts here have no replies so I'd like to buck that trend. I hope you enjoy coming to the UK. I'm autistic like most of my family. My little brother is autistic too and has learning difficulties and we used to sign with him. That's probably where we began. We started with Makaton and then desired to learn a proper language, then learnt SSE, and now I'm learning BSL proper. BSL is such a wonderfully expressive language that says more quicker than many English words could. Welcome in advance to the UK and if you visit Wales say hi.

    • 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.
