Hello everyone


Recommended Posts

I'm learning BSL again after a break of 25 years. You know what they say, use it or loose it! Luckily I've always remembered BSL finger-spelling, which seems to under-pin a lot of signs. I've set up a Signing Support Group at work, as lots of my colleagues are keen to learn too. We work at an historic visitor attraction and want to improve our inclusion efforts for deaf/hearing impaired people.

Has anyone got suggestions for resources that we can use at our monthly meetings? Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Alexia,

The Group I run is for colleagues at work in South Derbyshire. There are 27 of us at present, with 22 of us recently started the online course. 

I'm looking for resources to print out for our monthly meetings so we can learn the signs together & people have something to take away and practice. Not everyone is confident using the internet.

any ideas? What have you come across?

A bit far away from where I am. Sorry, I just wanted to share sign conversations with someone live nearby me. 

Thanks for your reply.

    • Hi does anyone have the name of a BSL finger spelling font that I could download please?  Many thanks.
    • Hi my name is June.  I am a mum to a 27 year-old profoundly deaf son and I also work with HI children in a school unit as a Speech & Language Therapy Assistant.  I've been heavily involved in the deaf community since my son was diagnosed.
    • So, I moved to Japan last year to work as an English Teacher. One of the schools I visit is a special education school and uses Japanese Sign Language regularly in the classroom. As i began to learn JSL alongside spoken Japanese I decided it was time to properly start to learn some BSL too. Picking up BSL is generally easier for me too, as I already know English!
    • I'm Angel (25) from Kent. Currently living in the Japanese countryside hoping to learn BSL along with JSL (Japanese Sign Language). The dream is master both and be a translator/interpreter. Wish me luck!
    • My name is Marie (38 years old) and I come from Cardiff.  I have two children.  I've always wanted to master brand language and now it's finally coming true.  I work as a waitress in a cafe and it has happened to me several times that a customer communicated in sign language and I did not understand him.  I am very happy that I can learn this language.
    • hi, I am learning BSL as I love languages and also I occasionally work with deaf people and would like to be able to communicate with them.
    • The New Year will be here before we know it!   Let's make 2023 all about learning British Sign Language!   Our BSL Level 1 Course starts in January with John Archbold, and it is the perfect time to join if you have always wanted to learn BSL!   Contact us to book your place or for any enquiries.   www.remark.uk.com/bsl-level-1/
    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
