Creating a more accessible world


Recommended Posts

I've always tried to get into learning BSL, as I have a keen interest in languages, but this year have really started motivating myself more. No more excuses. While I was working in retail, there were a few customers who didn't speak English and as the only multilingual, I would always be the one translating. Until someone came in who was either hard of hearing or deaf and could only communicate in BSL and we were all at a loss. I feel that it is in line with my own personal goals for the society I want to live in to have a duty to learn how to be more accessible. An added bonus would be being able to communicate more with my cousin who is learning sign language to help with his communication difficulties due to autism.

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
