Hi there! :3

I've been interested in BSL for a while because I think it's just an amazing way to involve everyone no matter how much or little they're able to hear or say and I've been learning little bits here and there for a while now. I decided to really go for it and learn it properly when I started serving a deaf couple in work. I work for Home Bargains, and the couple are in quite regularly. The lady can lip read and she's able to respond so I can understand her, but I'd love to be able to sign things for them to make it a little easier for the both of them to talk to me. I love chatting with customers and getting to know new people, so hopefully this forum will be able to help me out with that. ^-^

I hope you're all having a good weekend.

Hi Loki,

I am currently in the process of studying for my BSL Level 2, so I am more than happy to help you out with anything you are not familiar with or just need help on. Just remember that BSL has its own structure to its language, can be confusing to start but you get to pick up on it. YouTube is always a great way to learn and pick up new signs, although again just remember that there are variations of signs throughout the United Kingdom. Keep signing to the customers when they come in, they appreciate it more than you actually think.

    • 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.
