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.

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
